The New Forest – The beginning

Behind everyday existence, something new is dawning. A new reality. You know that this reality exists. In the midst of the global crisis, you can feel its presence. You know it. There is an actual alternative. And this alternative is called: The New Forest. Welcome.

Wunderbaum’s actors free themselves of themselves, take leave of democracy, observe the world’s flaws, and prepare themselves for the total demolition. And now for something completely different… In The New Forest – The beginning Wunderbaum presents the scale model of a new society. The countdown has begun. The New Forest is on its way. Start.

The New Forest is a large-scale project created by actors group Wunderbaum, during which an all-out effort is made to build a future society.

Enter the pioneering The New Forest settlement in the heart of Rotterdam. Attend The New Forest performances at home and abroad, offering each time a new perspective on burning social issues.

Meet the residents of The New Forest: CEO’s, local policemen, dancers, genetic engineers, copywriters, film makers and your own friends. Or create a virtual New Forest, using an interactive online platform.

Welcome to The New Forest, where imagination is our destination.
