Andreas Eduardo Frank, Matthias Rebstock

Fungi are everywhere, in the air, in the soil, in the sea and even in space. They are among the oldest forms of life and can cope with the most adverse conditions. They are survival artists and masters of symbiosis. Their hyphal cells extend underground for kilometres through the soil and form huge mycelial networks. They enter relationships with other living things, transport information, store experiences and use electrical signals to process information, similar to the neurons in our nervous system and brain. But fungi do not have a brain. They are organised in a decentralised way and still «know» what the hyphae on the other side of the network are doing.
The music-theatrical access to the cosmos of mushrooms consists in the statement that human life and thinking have brought the world to the abyss and that we should learn from the mushrooms. But symbiotic thinking, which is contrary to individualistic-capitalistic logic, is still alien to us and contradicts our conditioning to ever more sophisticated individualisation strategies. The play consists of constantly new and absurd attempts to nevertheless put ourselves in the shoes of the mushrooms. The great network between fungi, humans, machines and plants, a new cosmos of symbiosis, a new way of thinking, that is the «HYPHEMIND».
