A Variety Show on Meat
For years, the Syndikat Gefährliche Liebschaften has been commuting to Quakenbrück, a small town in the meat belt of Lower Saxony. Butchers from Eastern Europe live here, who cut up pigs to be exported to China. And researchers developing paths for the future of meat. For ›Grilling Me Softly,‹ Syndikat Gefährliche Liebschaften met experts at the grill, the conveyor belt, the barn, the high seat, the lab, and the sausage kitchen. Their perspectives and secret recipes are brought together in this variety show between theater, pork feast, audio play, and grill party. At the fire pit or in the party tent, everything revolves around what tastes good—but the evening is also about meat cycles in which we are all involved. Meat is muscular mass, pork bouillon and identity. Meat is an invitation to take a stand. High time to place the topic on the grill!
During the performance, you will come in contact exclusively with meatless food. At the after-show BBQ on Friday, June 10, both vegan and animal meat products are on offer.
