You are invited to be part of a collaborative performance experiment. This abstract contemporary dance work uses radar and wireless technology to highlight the symbiotic relationship between audience and performer. Your presence in the space determines what movements are performed and the dancers’ movements activate a signal inviting you to move to a new spot in the space — creating a feedback loop of giving and receiving, building the dance in real-time together.

Mahagonny is a mythical American city where people live for greed, lust and violence. End of story.

Written in 1927, Mahagonny-Songspiel set the style for other melodic and savagely critical pieces of music theatre created in Weimar Germany. Elements of this small-scale scenic cantata influenced modern musicians including The Doors who recorded one of the production’s numbers in 1967, immortalizing its haunting first line: “Oh show me the way to the next whiskey bar….”
