The Dogshit Attack

A performance about darkness, beauty, and forgiveness, based on a real-life incident. 

A group of actors is looking for a subject for a performance that will attract a lot of attention and audiences. They decide to use a choreographer’s “dog poo attack” on a critic as a starting point. A real-life incident that caused a worldwide outcry and was seen as an attack on freedom of speech and democracy. But during rehearsals, they become afraid of becoming personae non grata themselves and get caught up in conflicts that threaten to undermine the group. Finally, under great stress and time pressure, they decide to stage a dance performance.

“You are moved and shocked and you are in the middle of theater that does not explain the world from the stage, but holds up a mirror to itself and the audience.” (MDR)

“With a production that pokes fun at the mechanisms of the scandalous theater and criticism industry, the ensemble gets the attention it deserves thanks to the poop word as bait.” (TAZ)
