kollektiv.plakativ
Th 09.01.2020 - 19:30 UhrPerformanceTICKET

Want Want Want! What we don’t all supposedly need to have and should want to have! kollektiv.plakativ rapidly and comically tackles buying binges and rampant consumerism. Hyped until the hangover. Has this been all there is? Is there not more to life?

Dust is everywhere. No matter how often we remove it – it always returns. Young collective äöü discovers the overarchingly large questions through the smallest morsels, in a cross between performance, installation and operetta.

Standing around, for minutes on end. Barely any movement. No sound. What appears to be dead simple and monotonous becomes an intense viewing experience with Locu&Ruth. Two women take a stand for something and have a standpoint, with their feet firmly planted on the ground. Worth seeing!
