Presented by British Intervention
“The Gesamtkunstwerk. A German word meaning total synthesis or total art. Focusing on the here and now and the constantly fluctuating social-political formation. When this changes, so does our show. We want to create a show which cannot be rehearsed or scripted, we want to create an environment which has to destroy itself each time it’s performed to be performed again. Nihilistic in its nature, we look particularly upon the act of violence and investigating what exists in the space between thought and action, and its consequence. We focus on violence not being only physical, but emotional too. The show incorporates many different disciplines and merges live performance art, music and protest, and is probably the most uncomfortable show you’ll watch this year. Welcome, to Gesamtkunstwerk – where people die, and people hurt.”
This production contains violent themes, torture and strong language.
