Things at the End of the World unfolds as a dynamic interplay between people and objects—elements that surprise, provoke, enchant, and astonish us. Guided by Alfredo Zinola and Salome D’Attilia, audiences are led into a world where the familiar becomes strange: heavy boulders float weightlessly, bouncing rubber balls sprout shaggy fur, and glittering slime quivers like liquid mercury. Through purely visual storytelling, devoid of language, the performance explores humanity’s intricate relationship with nature. With visionary tenderness and subtle humor, this dance piece fosters a profound appreciation for the natural world. It invites children and adults alike to embrace the unknown with reverence, care, and boundless curiosity.

    What happens when the television transcends its role as a mere media device? When it becomes a trusted friend, babysitter, and at times, a replacement parent? In the performance Orakel, Caner Akdeniz embarks on a thought-provoking journey through film history and personal reflection, delving into how iconic figures like Rambo and Terminator influence our shared consciousness. He rigorously tests the impact of these cultural touchstones on his own life and identity.

Through dance, language, and live drawings, she offers a unique anatomy lesson unlike any other. This captivating solo performance, suitable for ages 8 and up, is presented at the State Museum of Egyptian Art in Munich.

    What if human bodies could be used to generate energy? This raises critical questions about which bodies are considered "usable" under this paradigm and which are not. The immersive performance Blackouts explores these issues by transforming visitors into a collective human power plant, blending party and capitalism into a complex narrative. Is this a solution to the climate crisis or merely a new form of exploitation? Are you a cog in the machine or the sand that grinds it to a halt?

    „...power for the people: use your body... use your voice... make a choice...“
    Cheerleading codes, familiar from sporting events, are both employed and subverted in this dance piece to convey unique messages. Glamour, glitter, and an eclectic mix of slogans create a joyful and ironic alternative to traditional forms of protest. Radical Cheerleading poses the question: what causes are worth taking to the streets for?

    Heimsuchung (Visitation) is a chamber of terrors and a one-woman horror show. With humor and rumor, the myth of the perfect mother is meticulously dismantled, launched into the galaxy, and reborn as a needle in a haystack. It is an angrytopian journey into the inner workings of motherhood.

    In a monologue, Lulu Obermayer celebrates the radical artistic practice of Broadway dancer, choreographer and painter Marta Becket, who opened an opera house in the middle of the Californian desert in 1967. Lulu Obermayer tells a story of ghosts, time and devotion and of the (im)possibility of an artistic life. A mirage arises in which theater, dreams and fate become blurred.
