The International Space Station (ISS) is an internationally developed research facility in low Earth orbit. The presence of a permanent crew affords the ability to monitor, replenish, repair, and replace experiments and components of the spacecraft itself.
In space no one can hear you complain about your job.
In 2011, monochrom will make one of humanity's old dreams come true: an improv reality sitcom for theater stages portraying the first year of operation of the ISS (International Space Station).
The show depicts day-to-day working life in outer space. What is it like to live and work under the special conditions (and impairments) of a space station, to come to terms with weightlessness and the dictatorship of the functional? What is one to do, when any little sneeze costs 150,000 dollars? And all the while the national debt is continually setting new record highs. How, under such conditions, can you deal with having banal little everyday problems, and with (not) solving them?
