Rimini Protokoll (Helgard Haug)

Chinchilla Arschloch, waswas


German / approx. 100 Min.

At first glance it seems impossible to make theatre with Tourette syndrome: Anything that is not compatible with Tourette’s has to be changed. But exactly these changes form a text at some point. Christian Hempel, Benjamin Jürgens and Bijan Kaffenberger, all of whom experience Tourette’s, appear on stage for the first time in “Chinchilla Arschloch, waswas”. Together they put theatre to the test: How much unintentionality can it sustain? And is the stage designed for the opposite – precision, repeatability, control?
