Making yourself accessible as a critique of capitalism
Anyone who knows what to do on their own has not understood the crisis. And perhaps still believes that the world is a stage for egocentric self-assertion. But nothing disrupts being together as much as the capitalist command to produce oneself as something special.
The actors of this evening are resisting the patriarchal gesture of flooding spaces with their own self-totalization. They are looking for a place of being able to feel post-identical through relationship care. But how does that work when the structures with which people commit violence against each other lie within them?
The production explores what it could mean to allow oneself to be questioned in a trauma-sensitive way in order to become oneself despite power structures. Your own criticism of narcissism as an embodied criticism of capitalism. What needs to happen so that the feeling of being lost is transformed into collective and relationship-oriented rather than individual concern?
In a series of language destruction and reconstruction, musical trance and light arena, the production opens up an atmospheric discourse space between abstraction and closeness in order to mark the ideological grammars of disconnection.
Malte Schlösser & team are looking for subversive aesthetics of repetition to combat the traumatic compulsion to repeat. An escape from an overly complex world through the radical recognition of one's own lostness: If you don't know what to do next, you're right!
