Showcase Beat Le Mot

Nazisupermenschen sind euch allen überlegen – The Horror of the Ordinary

Performance

German / English / 120-180 min.

After an extensive tour the Nazi superhumans are coming back to HAU and are employing a choir so that they may continue to travel on their voices. The choir is supposed to sing Wagner, but it can only sing Verdi. The Nazi superhumans’ rallying cry is to make space – and their need for fresh air and open space is stronger than any hatred. Since there are ways everywhere, the have to get everything out of the way.
