“Tonight, lights out! […] 5 minutes for a better world” proclaimed a tabloid in 2007 to battle global warming. The Performance transposes this call to collective action into the theater. Each spectator controls one light bulb in the space. On / Off. Simple, right? And so the story begins. Tonight, lights out! is one of the most successful Wunder der Prärie-productions and now returns for the first time after performances all over Europe.

David Weber-Krebs (BE) is an artist and a researcher based in Brussels. He studied at the University of Fribourg (CH) and the Amsterdam School of the Arts (NL). David explores various contexts as a basis for an experimental process, which questions the traditional relationship between the work of art and its public. Recent works are the performances Tonight, lights out! (2011/2013), Balthazar (2013) with Maximilian Haas, Into the big world (2014), and the installation Immersion (2014) at the Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt. David collaborates on a regular basis with different artists and theorists and he teaches at different visual arts and performance academies.
