Soundtrack (excerpts):


“In the midst of Paolo Greco’s ingeniously mixed electronic soundtrack these “twenty-something”-protagonists experience that “living it up” is as deceptive as communist propaganda and military parades. Director Wolf E. Rahlfs has created a sublime evening of site-specific theatre.” – Theater der Zeit

“Anarchy in the Techno-Club.” – Die Deutsche Bühne

“A badass roller coaster ride between rebellion and despair.” – Badische Neueste Nachrichten

"If you could get a switchboard and connect it to all the shit in some people’s heads, I’d switch the fucker off, to stop the shit from spreading."
