Sea/Mehr - in collaboration with Clownfabrik
The Mediterranean? The remains of a collapsed clothing factory?
Does not really matter. Somewhere down there may be many dead.
The question is: how did this catastrophe come about?
The 3 performers on stage approach this question from an existential perspective because they cannot do otherwise. A clown feels, senses, perceives and acts accordingly. Without thinking too much.
The clown represents the archetype of the human psyche.
The clown is the embodiment of unfiltered emotions, a permission to freedom, an anarchist.
The clown wants to be loved and in his endeavors his human faults are revealed.
The clown fails – often.
A sea of clothes. Emotions such as greed, envy and shame come into play and are lived out to the point of crazy with the playfulness of the clown in its lightness and depth.
