"and all the animals cry: this title doesn't save the world anymore"

"This is not a play," writes playwright Thomas Köck, calling his text a "requiem manifesto." Indeed, "and all the animals cry..." is a requiem mass for all the extinct animals that once populated our planet before humans eradicated them. It is a lament about man-made extinction of species. And therefore, an indictment of humanity, which—by abusing creatures and nature—ultimately works towards the annihilation of its own species. "Why did we choose extinction?" Köck provocatively asks in this piece that defies the laws of theater, just as Extinction Rebellion activists defy existing laws through civil disobedience. "and all the animals cry..." is an angry manifesto against downfall and precisely through its rejection of common theater conventions: joyful theater—presented in the production by Christoph Leibold for Theater 5, performed by a ensemble of very young actresses who demand their right to a future that previous generations have put at risk.
