It’s impossible to imagine the theatre today without Shakespeare and his influence. His plays continue to be staged, adapted and reinterpreted for a new audience. Some Nerve, an international ensemble of English native speakers, takes the characters, themes and narrative structures from Shakespeare’s oeuvre and uses them to create a new play customized for the audience that night, focusing on the catastrophe in particular, the period after the catharsis in Aristotle’s Poetics. But not everything has to end in tragedy!
Tickle Your Catastrophe is a space for experimentation in which the players question modern narrative structure and habits, reviving them with approaches from improvisational theatre, bouffon und Viewpoints.
