Stories in the Dark

Part of "Arbeit Liebe Geld - 5 Years of Houselcub"


When they give themselves over to secret emotions they turn into black panthers. They are the students at Thomas Mann School, working together with the dancer and choreographer Kareth Schaffer. Taking the classic horror movie Cat People as their starting point, the are using performance to investigate voices, making noise, and tableaux vivants. As part of the festival "Arbeit Liebe Geld / 5 Years of Houseclub" there will be another presentation of this work. Darkness and everything that plays out in secret is central for the work of Kareth Schaffer, who directed the Houseclub “Unerhört in 3D” at HAU in July 2015 with the 7A2 class from the Hector Peterson School.
