»Verdrängen Verdrängen Verdrängen« is an experimental music theatre production about feelings, memories and repression. In their very own minimalistic and humorous way, Oblivia explores the collective European subconscious and the human mind, and delves into shared memories and experiences. The performance revolves around different meanings and interpretations of the German word »Verdrängen«. The word can mean rejection, abandonment or displacement.

The performance takes place in a world where the familiar becomes unfamiliar, where the uncanny is the new norm, and where ghosts and aliens move freely. From schlagers to contemporary music, the work has been created in collaboration with the young, talented composer, Yiran Zhao.
