Panache’s life is completely streamlined. She has found a place for herself. At least, that is what she believes. But suddenly she’s two . . . then three. . . then many. . .
Provoked by the neoliberal imperative for beauty, youth and agility, DETACHED investigates all the things we do the self: self-evaluation, self-organisation, self-determination, delf-fulfillment, self-enhancement. But it also moves beyond that: to the shadow. In this optimised and self-disclosing present, what is dark, secret, and invisible poses a continuous threat to efficency. But where is this society that is losing its shadows taking us to?
Anderplatz brings together 10 collaborators from Spain, Argentina, Austria, Germany, Italy and USA for their first theater-dance show DETACHED.
DETACHED hat its premiere at Dock 11 in Berlin on the 17th Novembre 2016 and a new version premiere on 30 November 2017.
