by Federico Vöcks de Schwindt and ensemble

Following the recommendation mode of YouTube, Federico Vöcks de Schwindt & Ensemble invent an episodic narrative of life in the 21st century. It is fed by fragments of life posted online, testifying to emotional and irritating situations. In five languages and with abysmal humor, the players plunge into a world where every step is influenced by the market and find familiar characters between tragedy and absurdity.

Veranstaltungen in Berlin: EPISODIO

In the middle of the night, Hans Brachs abandons the family dog on the highway. The video from a security camera that accidentally records this scene goes viral, while the rest of the family doesn't seem to notice the absence of the dog's bark in the garden. The absurd void his act leaves in Hans catapults him and the whole family on a furious road trip in which every stage and all relationships are first subject to the laws of attention economy.


EPISODIO traces that paralyzing vacuum and confusion felt by those who drift from video to video for hours in search of ever stronger emotions. How do a secret algorithm and the logic of the neoliberal market permeate our personal narrative of the world? Life is the new normal!
