SADLAND

Sadland is an electronic musical, an emotional space where feelings of emptiness, bad nerves, anxiety, depression and the feeling of having lost something become the narrative.
In the performance SADLAND, we look at the world through sad culture. We look at our time from the horizon of the sad and depressed and creates a collective condition that acts as a resistance to today's neoliberal projects - where each individual is responsible for it´s own happiness and success.
We hope that this mourning song- performance will be a consolation in our desolate and capitalist world.

ROSEMARYS BABY SHOWER

Rosemary's Babyshower is a philosophical show about carrying and giving birth. About being two bodies in one, to be one and the same organism. To be the venue for the past and the future. To exist in a gap, a parenthesis. To be the center of the world.

Rosemary's Baby Shows is a flirtation with the horror genre and a longing away from the explanatory. With dreams of animal births, highly pregnant philosophers and a maternity band, Rosemary's Babyshower takes you through the whole experience of this strange condition.

STAGE MINIMUM

Length: 1,5 hours

MY GRANDPA THE PASTOR

a mass made for churches

"My name is Paulina. It is a feminine form of Paul. So, I am named after the primary missionary of the original church, and founder of Christianity. And patron saint for the snake bitten.
 
I have not been to a church in 20 years.
But I have come here today, since the thought has returned time and time again. and, I think I should make it so.
You have gathered here today, to witness a meeting between me and my dead grandfather.
Welcome to my mass."
