Henrike Iglesias is ›Under Pressure‹. In a brilliant interactive competition show, the collective deals with the pressure to achieve that is omnipresent in our turbo-capitalist society. The performers compete against each other, and the audience gets to decide who is “The Best” Henrike. Winner or loser? Hot or not? Photo or no photo? Henrike Iglesias undermine these violent and disciplining categories by failing evening after evening in front of the assembled audience.

In this competition you are the jury! You need a smartphone for the voting. Please register in time before the start of the show on www.underpressure.live with the access code you received with your online ticket.

The theater collective Henrike Iglesias (Berlin/Basel) was founded in 2012 by Anna Fries, Laura Naumann, Marielle Schavan and Sophia Schroth. Eva G. Alonso and Malu Peeters are now also permanent member of the crew. They have known each other since attending sports high school. Their theatrical field ranges from the popular, to the personal, to the political. They grasp phenomena of pop culture and the mass media as a mirror of societal conditions and grievances and have made it their task to shed light on them from an explicitly feminist point of view. They enjoy appearing as Feminist Killjoys, DJ Henrike Iglesias and internet users.
