‘A contac-intensive lecture, without smartphones, no fears, and a lot of self-confidence’
‘Grüne Soße and performance artist Leandro Kees got together to stage a production that delivers unusual physicality, spontaneity and an appetite for the undefinable’
FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
‘A rough and amusing hour on stage’
This piece was made around questions that could be found in a secondary school book, but are not: How much money is it OK to have? Why men need to cover up less than women? What are the races, ages and genders of the authors of school History books in Europe? How much less than men do women earn in Germany? Can you call a candy store owner a drug dealer?
Theatre for youngster lives in a strange symbiosis with secondary schools: most youngsters go to the Theatre as part of a school trip, and is often expected that a show is somhow 'pedagogical'.
But what des it mean to be pedagoical? And what would teachers teach it it was left entirely to their own choice? How would a professor act if it had total freedom and it was not controlled by a national state? Or even more: what if a group of artists were asked to create new contents and teaching styles for schools?
Maybe an artist trying to become a teacher is as hopeless as a biology teacher trying composing a symphony. And this show is exactly about this irony.
This is a piece about the endless room for absurdities that will occur if teachers and artist ever switch roles.
