The Show Must Not Go On
"There's no business like show business..." and what becomes evident when looking behind the glittering facade? Outdated working conditions and partly questionable, clichéd content. Based on interviews with musical performers, their experiences of everyday work life are palpable, which consists of a lot of external control. It allows a glimpse into a new generation that hopes for a renewal within their field: 'Let's open up new spaces. There is so much creative potential, but it's not being demanded.'
The performance 'The Show Must Not Go On' is conceived as a refusal to conform to the usual show format, deconstructing common (role) images and aesthetic effects of musicals. Through song, dance, and text, the personal experiences are interpreted in a sober-minimalistic or even satirical manner, contrasting with the typical musical aesthetics.
By combining contemporary dance and performance with musical elements, it creates a crossover that consistently undermines the familiar.
