Blockbuster by Sibylle Berg // Premiere: Apr 2012, Badische Landesbühne
“Just like a DJ on the mixer, Rahlfs pumps up the heat sky-high, only to suddenly catapult it into moments of spiritual revelation. These are scenes of intense emotional density.” – Badische Neueste Nachrichten
“Hardcore stuff for the audience, who is palpably in a state of shock.” – Fränkische Nachrichten
“Ugh, yulk!” – Ein Zuschauer
Whoever puts security before freedom, is quite rightly a slave.
In Main Thing Labour! SPOOKY BUNCH set sails with eight employees of an insurance company, their boss and the motivational rat Frank. Using the platform of a work party, they present a grotesque social revue about exploitation, philistines and turbo capitalism. The no-name ladies and gentlemen of the no-name company form a choir of failures, while the rats take charge of the on-board affairs. Resistance is futile… or: Don't we all have phimosis.
