« Bad ideas, ugly feelings and guilty pleasures are performed together. »

In GERMAN STAATSTHEATER (GST), twelve performers from diverse backgrounds take you on an energetic performative journey. Expressed in an incessant slapstick of over-tensed bodies, today’s society’s perpetual workload, with burnouts and stress-culture as a consequence, is portrayed here as a powerful search for what community and togetherness can still mean in an individualistic succes-based society. GERMAN STAATSTHEATER is a continuous tornado of panic turned into humour and self-deprecation, and ultimately shows the power of community. Theatre as a place to celebrate 'wasted' energy, in the form of exuberant fun.

This show is co-presented with Beursschouwburg as part of the It Takes A City festival.
