A drama without characters and action. A drama that no longer takes place, but has been shrunk into five prose sketches (fragments), from 200 pages to nine. Almost a shrunken head, although like a collage with contemporary history and one’s own experiences, the material of Hamlet grows together or associatively fragments. Witty, subversive, with a large dose of cynicism and humour, desperately vital, hopefully absurd. An incredibly highly charged, intensely topical text fabric.


Who still believes in the Coca Cola status quo as the formula for universal happiness ?

Or in terrorism as the last position of humanism ?


Observation from the standpoint of the mole.


The text can be left in peace. It is complex enough. It speaks for itself, it needs no interpretation. It is material like light or sound, space or body, element and building block.


What you can think, you don’t need to do.

What you can think, you can also do.


A staging of the brain waves and brain nerves with the narrative structure of dreams, without transitions – independent of linear interpretations.

It is about getting an image machine moving – a theatre in the head.

The work is an incredibly complex organic structure; not a montage, a body. The movement of the body is the work, an animalistic movement, a sensual experience.


The uprising begins as a walk.

Against traffic regulations during working hours.
