go plastic company

time & s_pace Performance 2022/23

Two people behave in a motel room. Whether together or alone, with or next to each other, at the same time or displaced – what they have in common is this temporary place. 

And there is not much time left, the end is approaching. How do they deal with it, what do they value, what is important to them – in the face of the end. And isn’t every end also a new beginning? What do these last weeks, hours, moments look like? What happens to stories, rituals, habits, dependencies? With patterns, structures, routines?

There is no escape and yet everyone flees into a reality that will soon no longer exist. The escape begins and ends in this room. Seemingly detached from the outside world and yet at the mercy of the same fate. 

The production “MOTEL VIBES” by the go plastic company offers the audience voyeuristic insights into a deeper “enclosure of vanities”. Equipped by fashion and performance artist Alexandra Börner and surrounded and driven by Nikolaus Woernle’s soundtrack, the two performers expose themselves to an ultimate chamber play scenario.
