Showcase Beat Le Mot
Showcase Beat Le Mot zeigen Gefühle
Showcase Beat Le Mot’s current double performance is not based on a piece, but rather on a city with food and drink. And then: fireworks. For this emotional evening the four theater shamans fumble their way through the dark corridors of their central nervous system in search of the light switch. If there is an inner life, it has to be out there somewhere. On the weeping piano: musician Thies Mynther.

The smile sewn into our faces here answers to a caricature of the art industry, to a caricature of musical devotion and choreographic stage conventions.
