Ice Age – Antarctic Adventures

Antarctica is the largest wilderness still in existence on earth. André Schumacher spent three months on South Georgia, the Antarctic peninsula and its entwining oceans. The images with which he returned portray the breathtaking beauty of an endangered paradise.

Nowhere is it colder, windier and drier. In the summer 24 hours of daylight prevail, while during the winter, the continent is consumed by total darkness. Unimaginable vastness, solitude and wild origins unite Antarctica in unique beauty. It’s the kingdom of whales, seals and sea birds and the largest penguin colonies in the world. Above all, it's a place where we’re able to remember what we are: just a tiny part of the whole.

The vivid presentation almost comes across as a novel – the audience doesn’t merely become immersed in its powerful images of a geographical journey to the end of the world. It’s also a journey of 2,000 years of human history from the Terra Australis Incognita, whose existence gave wings to the thoughts of ancient Greeks, passing through sailors and explorers who felt the forces of nature to their harshest extent, to current questions regarding the use and future of the icy southern continent.

It’s an unusual presentation leaving the audience room to look, listen and dream – in an epic journey of images and music.
