mind the rage

go plastic company

2023/24 Tanz Performance

The go plastic company undertakes an attempt to determine the positive power of anger and how it can be useful for different approaches. The performers have had conversations with WUT experts from different areas of life and work, listened to their voices and started attempts to find perspectives and new levels on the topic of anger. They have experienced the different expressions of anger between negative portrayal and positive image, between enthusiasm and painful self-awareness, between exuberant energy and unrestrained silence. Based on their extensive thematic research, the collective sets an artistic framework filled with biographical anecdotes, associative circumlocutions and personal reflections.

go plastic invites you on a round trip through the realms of rage.
