------------------------------------------

 

Some experiments are forgotten - perhaps rightly so. But the Nesterval Fund for Charitable Purposes is always ready to support family members in their projects, no matter how absurd and revolutionary. For the first time, a Nesterval production takes place entirely online - but as usual, immersively and interactively. Participants and actor will be connected with each other at home on their laptop or computer to become part of The Kreisky-Test. But who will be the chosen ones and what are they chosen for?

Jonas Nesterval has been looking for his mother Gertrud for as long as he can remember. She abandoned her family when he was four years old. The father never mentions her, and neither do the archives or the party. But then, one day, some material acquired by Gertrud during her travels in Europe surfaces: interviews and film footage showing activists from Serbia, Spain, and Italy. Jonas is convinced that his mother was at the centre of Austria’s history, working on a revolutionary project. Finally, the heart of her work appears: the so-called Kreisky test. 

And then happens what nobody expected. The world stands still. A virus keeps mankind at bay. Jonas wakes from shock and decides: it's time. Now or never! The Kreisky test must be completed. Just now! The participants should help Jonas to put a group of selected people through the final test phase. You decide who is left in the end. Because only the best should make it, should preserve what is in danger.

Left or right, up or down? How do you protect your own history, your own values ​​when the situation and environment are perceived as life-threatening? Gertrud Nesterval has made a decision and her son Jonas is ready to accomplish what she started. Who will be the chosen ones and what are they chosen for? Find out in Nesterval's new immersive online performance.

The capacity per test procedure is 16 people.

Nesterval’s cast includes performers, drag artists, amateur and professional actors, who outline the history of the Nesterval family in various constellations. In a mix of classic gaming and immersive theatre, Herr Finnland and his team create performance adventures that turn their participants into actors in the play, authorised to determine what happens next. The Village (2018), Nesterval’s co-production with brut, was nominated for the 2019 Nestroy Special Award.
