Every evening under the title FEELS LIKE: two short monologues one after the other let their feelings run free. There are also specials such as DJs and delicious snacks in our BAR WITH FEELING. We recommend one of the limited day tickets for your Live visit.
Schönheit und Schrecken (lass dir alles geschehen)
Cora Rudy van Dongen cruises through the worlds of daily life like Barbarella in her extraterrestrial extravagances. Full of a growing fascination, glow and anger, trapped in the tunnel of a monologue. Will he explode like a star? Or will he be saved by an angel? A spaceship? PAS DE PUP MERCI!
Barbarella, why don’t you tell us what a monologue is, aren’t we constantly speaking in monologues? Why do we think our thoughts are so important? Aren’t we simply all part of a giant ravenous fungus, each one of us a cell? The future will happily slap us in our soliloquizing faces, it has long since arrived! So – just let it all happen to you; beauty and horror. And don’t forget to chew. Or you’ll get nauseous, my dear! We are alone, oh so very alone!
Why do we speak with chickens and with the wind when no one else is around? With the dead, Goddess, with the past and the future? Who are we still speaking to, anyway? And what is speaking? Did we get a textbook that one day will be empty? Is the mouth half empty or half full? Is crying and laughing a monologue? Let us say blob blob and tralalala. Let us laugh and sing with a full mouth!
