POING+Maja Ratkje: Wach auf!

The red revolution has a new face in our time. Is it progress or sentimentality? How can we, by caressing old idioms with contemporary lust and energy, suggest an inviting alternative to the egocentric, postmodern capitalism and liberalism?

Brecht encouraged to play with and exaggerate the elements used on stage. This involved “stripping the event of its self-evident, familiar, obvious quality and creating a sense of astonishment and curiosity”. By doing so, he hoped to communicate that the audience’s reality is equally constructed and changeable. So, join us in the singing, and never stop changing!
