»The Wolf is crying and weeping in pain
As his love for little red is in vain
She has a crush on the handsome hunter*
And luckily, it’s them who want her
So sorry Wolf, you have to say bye
I guess in this story you have to die«
The lovesick wolf drowns his sorrow in blood, tears and karaoke songs.
As one of the last representatives of a world order that is about to perish, he tells us his version of the story. It is unwilling to listen to any arguments until the other protagonists, Little Red Riding Hood and the huntsman, finally enter the scene. The wolf is dead, long live the wolf. Heralding a new age, we celebrate with them the brief utopian moment of love and solidarity, which will soon mutate into new forms of oppression.
Based on the story of Little Red Riding Hood, WOLF tells a bloodthirsty lovestory, which for one moment allows a vision of freedom to shine through, before the revolution devours its children again in the eternal cycle of eating and being eaten.
In haunting images the queer performers couple Lucy Wilke and Lotta Ökmen and Sahar Rahimi & Team put together a narration about the very last rebellion of the old systems and the rise of the new ones. About identity-political clamor, romantic chatter and false intestines.
