The performance lasts about 90 minutes and takes place in German spoken language.

The audience is led into a darkened theater hall. The seeing audience will be asked to put on a blindfold (sleep mask) for the duration of the performance. If this situation should be unpleasant, it is possible at any time to remove the blindfold independently or to indicate this by hand signal. For a more detailed description of the sensory and thematic impressions of the performance, please read the text in the Content Note section.

All performance spaces in the Schwankhalle are accessible at ground level and without steps. The audience area is seated.

For more information on the accessibility of our spaces, click here ↗. If you have any questions, please contact us at ticket@schwankhalle.de or 0421 520 80 70.

Not being able to see or being in darkness can cause discomfort under certain circumstances. There is always the possibility to remove the blindfold and/or to indicate this by hand signal. If this is the case, our evening staff will reach out to you. We generally advise people who associate traumatic experiences with darkness and not being able to see not to attend the performance.

During the performance there are intense sensory experiences. 
Smells: There are intense smells, both synthetic and natural.
Sounds: there are intense and loud sounds and music during the performance. Sound is generated from many different sources.

Spoken language is used to bring up topics that may be upsetting to some people, along with many other topics. These include: Descriptions of violence, sexual acts, bullying, exclusion based on identifying characteristics, and danger.

The performers will not intentionally touch the audience, but may come close.

There may be a sense of disorientation or loss of control due to the combination of artistic means in conjunction with the blindfolded eyes. We would like to invite you to an intense, pleasant and multi-layered experience!

»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.
