»Wir wollen, dass es schön ist« is a full-length, approx. 90-minute performance that invites the audience to enter into total darkness and explore beauty in a composition of sounds, smells, movements, and associations.
It is dark. There’s nothing to see. Not a breeze is stirring. Take a seat, lean back and open your nose and ears! Nothing is particularly beautiful, except perhaps the peacefulness of absence. That is the point of departure. In the midst of this darkness, Hysterisches Globusgefühl sets off on a search for the beauty of collective experience. Between anarchic aromas and groping bodies floats the longing for what is nice about beauty. Because everyone desires something, and we call that which is desirable beautiful. But beauty is an imperative, a norm. And a norm is not beautiful. So should we strive for beauty, truth and goodness? Or is that all nonsense, and do we have to find something else? Smells and sounds mingle with texts and politics, and there is a touch of a hysterical global feeling in the air.
