Last spring, OntheBoards.tv went to Austin, TX to film the high-energy concert spectacle Songs at the end of the world by the Dutch-Flemish group Wunderbaum. Now we are thrilled to bring it to you!

Songs at the end of the world

“Antarctica is the last place where you may drop down, when you shake the earth and can’t stay put anywhere else.”

Inspired by this quote from the documentary Encouters at the End of the World by German filmmaker Werner Herzog, Wunderbaum and Touki Delphine will cooperate for a second time, six years after Lost Chord Radio. Wunderbaum, a Dutch-Flemish group of actors/musicians performs a high-energy concert spectacle about dreams, choices and possibilities set in Antartica.
