"WENN KOLLEKTIVE KRÄFTE WALTEN, DANN HABEN SIE SICH BEREITS ZUSAMMEN GESCHLOSSEN UND LEGEN LOS, AUF GEHT’S!“
(out of "Am Königsweg" by Elfriede Jelinek)
For the first production within the cycle "Power to Whom" the guts company deals with the theater text "Am Königsweg" by Elfriede Jelinek. The evening explores the thesis: without mass, no power. But also the question, what are people willing to leave behind, just to belong to this mass? Two dancers on stage and an actress on 11 screens engage in a great round of leading and following - submission, wordiness, blinding, promise, repetition - the ingredients for a successful leadership over a mass of identity-hungry, finally-no-longer-orientationless, however-upright new citizens. Using the means of dance and an abridged version of Elfriede Jelinek's text, the guts company transforms the theme of power into a large, crowded and multi-layered negotiation between top and bottom.
