Anyone who has ever had to deal with a household clear-out knows that the junk usually has no value – or does it? Swiss theater award winner Antje Schupp invites the audience to an advanced recycling session. After a relaxed arrival with coffee and drinks from Grandma’s best service, Antje and her team rummage through all the loaded things from the past. Musical, playful, full of attention to detail, between exhibition setting and loving chaos: definitely more bless this mess than Marie Kondō.
»Recycling of Life« speculates on the eternal cycle of life and things: in order to live, cells die in us unnoticed, sometimes every second, and are renewed. Philosophically, the evening not only poses the question of value, but also utilizes memories, knowledge and experiences. What to do with all these things and memories?
Please bring an item along to the performance that is worthless to others but valuable to you. It can become part of the »Gallery of Useless Things«, if you are willing to give it to us on loan. We also accept vinyls and slides that are no longer needed. Thank you!
