Many of them are dealing with the pressing sociological and environmental issues like personal and structural violence, the effects of competition in the society to an individual, gender and transgender equality, exploitation of the poor, mass extinction of the animal and plant species due to the actions of the human race and the threat of the climate change.
These issues are reflected in the pieces in a very personal and also surprising ways by the composers, sometimes with a humoristic twist. The use of live-electronics, sound tracks, click tracks, instrumental amplification and video projection is very much a trend nowadays, as we can see from the programme. The title reflects the fleeing momentariness of the present now and also implies that we could – still – change the grim future of our planet into a better one. Act before it’s too late!
