That moment when everything gets out of hand, when you want to run away or dive into a lava lake. When your ears get hot, your head turns red and your hands don't know where to go. Welcome to the universe of fucking p*b*rty. Would be really nice if someone would help. If the hairy leg could make a clear announcement, as the arms disappear casually in the pockets of the pants. But no, eh everything too big, too small, too thick, too thin or strangely discolored. Yes, you just stare!
PINSKER+BERNHARDT invite everyone from 12 years to explore the fucking p*b*rty as the ultimate brain-body killer of all human conditions. For this purpose, the theater becomes a laboratory where growing pimples and pubic hair take command while the staff tries to get to the bottom of this absurd spectacle.
PINSKER+BERNHARDT studied choreography and performance as well as applied theater studies. They were participants in the international research residency next generation workspace. In 2018, they spent seven months in a mediation residency at the Mousonturm conducting scenic research on the topic of "The Pleasure of Not Understanding." In the 2019/2020 season, they were artists in residence at the Hessisches Landestheater Marburg.
After all performances, there will be several follow-up conversations lasting a maximum of 90 minutes. The talks will be divided up on the spot. There is always a talkback in English (or with English interpretation) for this guest performance, as well as spatially accessible options. Information about the presenters can be found here.
