Why is being different not experienced as enriching, instead giving rise to social resistance? Following “Don’t hope” and “Gespräch haben / Ohne Worte,” Martin Clausen und Kollegen tackle patterns of language and behaviour in their inimitable way in their third work at HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Using the often absurd conversations from everyday life, they play with the reactions that arise when people come together. Embedded in music and choreography, the performers Martin Clausen, Rahel Savoldelli and Peter Trabner and the musicians Mario Schulte, Doc Schoko and Harald Wissler let worlds collide. From efficient, unempathetic, nouveau-riche to unteachable – the dialogues form a fertile breeding ground from which analyses of modern civilization sprout.
