Sex, Drugs, Ethics, History and Rock&Roll

 

 

‘A contac-intensive lecture, without smartphones, no fears, and a lot of self-confidence’
Frankfurter Rundschau

‘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’
Frankfurter Rundschau

 

 

 

 

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.

  • DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

     

    "My work aims to consolidate the gap between the real and the imaginary, I seldom choose fiction as a subject and focus normally in issues you might find in a newspaper.  This work in particular swings  between the dualities of how things are, and how we would  like them to be sometimes.

    In an era where knowledge is mutating all the time and memory-learning is no longer needed, we asked our selves what could people learn instead of the content currently regulated by a national state.  And we specially fantasized about how a class might look like, if artists would ever become school teachers."
