Premiere

Post Ironic Moustache is a contemporary dance piece that combines performance, acting and live music in a cinematographic stage environment. Thematically inspired by the writings of the British cultural scientist Mark Fisher, in particular Acid Communism, in which he analyzed the political complexity of our time and the end of a class society as a possibility of a post-capitalist developments of our society. Post Ironic Moustache wants to deal with this theme scenically, questioning what we can learn from this spirit and how collective decision-making processes as a working method, metaphorically standing for our society, can performatively test this spirit. Collectivity, the individual and “common good” are themes of the piece and our working methodology.
