As another midsummer is approaching and the heatwave ignites random bonfires, the wind scatters the ashes on the remaining tree stumps, and in the glaring flames the charred forests magically sparkle, as if enchanted.

During the night, the heat is bearable. But no one sleeps, they venture out of their bunkers to admire the spectacle of flames. Walking on fire is an old ritual for cleansing – now it’s the new normal.

Created by choreographer Sergiu Matis for ŻfinMalta, this rendition of Shakespeare’s play adapts the themes of obsessive love, nature, and the mystical, to our time, bringing in the new themes of climate change, feminism, and the colonialist, capitalist west. In this Midsummer Night’s Dream no one laughs at trivial erotic turbulences anymore. What do we laugh at in the post- apocalypse?

Sergiu Matis is a Romanian choreographer living and working in Berlin.
