Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker

Noise and Darkness

Tanz im August

Welcome to the anarchic chaos and loud world of Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker. In Noise and Darkness the Japanese company of 24 young performers confront the audience at breakneck speed with pop music, slogans, dance routines and video clips to create an incomparable theatrical hyper-reality. The frenetic flow of energy is the signature style of the founder of the company, Toco Nikaido, whose hybrid performances seem to hurl consumer society and disposable culture onto the stage.


Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker uses pop- and sub-cultural references and political symbols as markers of the political, ecological and social bankruptcy of post-industrial society. It is an overwhelming experience, with all kinds of stuff flying through the air, so audiences are given raincoats and asked to leave their best shoes at home.

You are allowed to photograph and video during the performance, and to post the results on social-media websites. This is an unforgettable event.

Supported by the Japan Foundation.
