The empathic body vol. 3

Silke Z. & die metabolisten

In the third and last part of the series »Der empathische Körper« (the empathic body), Silke Z. and die metabolisten put themselves and their audience to the test: They test the limits of empathy and throw themselves into absurd situations on stage, which resembles an arena, in order to win the favour of the audience.

The live sounds of sound designer Sarah Procissi and songwriter Nikolaj Grunwald drive the performers into an extreme display of their supposed individuality and uniqueness. What at the beginning seems like a “normal” casting show disassembles itself over time and at the same time pushes the machinery of show business to the extreme.

Die metabolisten challenge the audience to leave their comfort zone of anonymity and present them with a choice over and over again – it’s YOUR CHOICE!
