(Munich, October 2012) “Sex to change the end of the world” is what Jules promises in a carefully crafted personal ad. The marine biologist successfully attracts a ready-and-willing journalism student to his underground lab, where he studies fish sleep cycles to predict the apocalypse. When the end is near, he plans to be prepared - and hopes he’s found the suitable mate to save the world with their “intensely significant coupling”.
This off-beat, hilarious dooms-day comedy will keep you laughing and scratching your head at the same time. Inspired by Stephen Jay Gould’s book “Wonderful Life”, Peter Sinn Nachtrieb asks you to think about the delicate nature of our existence. Will this unlikely couple lead to another big bang? Or is the destiny of the human species being orchestrated by someone outside this aquarium?
