“An evening, crazily silly, unbridled and magical!” KWest

In Meg Stuart’s new production, six performers and three musicians find themselves in a place that is both a nightclub and an arena: an unreliable, high-octane refuge, a place of desire and illusion. To the sound of throbbing basses, piano and drums – a mix between improvisation and composition – they make optimistic attempts to meet impossible deadlines.

After taking her own artistic and personal biography as a starting point for her solo work Hunter (2014), Meg Stuart now draws inspiration from people who retreat from the real world and construct their own, fantastic set of rules. The performers are ‘freaky insiders’, forced to connect in uncomfortable, yet playful ways. Navigating between naivety and despair, they are dreamers who long for reality. In a world in which they fade away and disappear, they feel the urge to seek new forms of appearance.
