I am not the real danger

Ich bin nicht wirklich die Gefahr

Which worst-case scenarios haunt are brains but how do they get inside? Turbo Pascal stages a thought experiment to explore the question: What danger do we actually believe oruselves to be in? What is the worst that could happen today – in this meeting place of 100 people – in Berlin or in Vienna? With the help of talks by speicalists and soliloquies as well as with the scenario technique from the field of Future Research, Turbo Pascal lays out a sizeable collection of dangers, coming from the test laboratory to the theatre. For a certain time the public and performers become part of a worst-case commitee in order to decide over their own risk potential.
