A city works like a body. It has its central stomach, its green lungs, its concrete skin and streets like arteries running through it. But what makes the head of a city? And will it run the complete system wisely and without any major incidents or will it bring it to death?
In the new theater game Monypolo II by Thea Hoffmann-Axthelm and Prinzip Gonzo the world as we know it does not exist anymore. Inside an abandoned office building in West Berlin, they created a new one. Here everything is divided by functions and organs all working separately desperately looking for a real leader. Between bureaucratic horror and futuristic sensual experience the play leads you through a universe that has no shape and no purpose. And maybe it is a world without a purpose that makes us silently fear the future we are heading towards.
Take your chance to visit the play until July 21, 2017 and make sure to buy your tickets in time. Our photographic impressions of the play below.
What the fuck is this thing called capitalism? And why it is actually messing up all our lives instead of making them better? As simple as these questions seem at first, as complex are their answers. To take a look at one aspect that is going completely wrong with capitalism let’s reflect one moment about the Berlin start-up bubble.
Our beloved Berlin is a fertile ground for start-ups of all kinds. Low rents and many smart international people as potential employees are great resources to start your company. With the right investors, you can literally create any kind of business in this town. But as genius some start-up concepts can be, as stupid and absolutely useless to humanity the others are.
With their new theater game Monypolo the collective Prinzip Gonzo is reflecting about all the absurd aspects of hyper-capitalism and über-entrepreneurialism. With 60 other players you create a fictional career and play for success inside an abandoned supermarket at Kudamm. Between luxury boutiques and high street brands you enter a desolate mall to find a giant playground for adults waiting for you to be explored. More about our experience, the dates and some photos of the exciting game after the jump.
Did you ever wish you had studied something else? Worked less? Had more holidays? Married somebody else? Or even just did some art or yoga classes instead of being lazy all through your free time? All these regrets belong to the past. Because with the innovative theater and performance concept Game of Life by the collective Prinzip Gonzo you have the unique chance to reboot your life and start from the beginning.
Inside an abandoned warehouse building in Schöneweide stage design genius Thea Hoffmann-Axthelm created a parallel world without boundaries. More then 25 performers will guide through and play with you this challenging three-dimensional game where you can actually win or lose. You can decide if you rather like to drink free martinis all night long or prefer to collect money and karma to be one of the best.
The play is only running from May 16-24 and is also suitable for a non-German speaking audience. Don’t hesitate and reserve a seat to this adventure you will never forget. More photos and the dates and times after the jump.
