Der Diskrete Charme Der Reduktion
Performance // Der Diskrete Charme Der Reduktion, Komische Oper, Berlin, Dir. Schorsch Kamerun, Premiere 17th Feb. 2023
"Schorsch Kamerun, together with the musician Pc Nackt and other artists, ask the questions:
How can the urge to spread be dealt with in a generally compatible way? What attractive strategies can be found despite material withdrawal? The Discrete Charm of Reduction condenses collected voices of the citizens, sorts images, reviews old ideals and develops a music-theatrical happening between dream imagination and trauma". – Komischer Oper Berlin

Alles In Ordnung
Stage Design // Alles in Ordnung, Theater Discounter Berlin, Dir. Charlotte Lorenz
Premiere 14th Oct. 2022
"Alles in Ordnung takes us to the film set of a crime thriller. While we follow a hot lead, the actors go in search of that “police feeling”. Based on interviews with real police officers, candidates and those who embody them in films and series, the suspense of the investigation creates a documentary fiction about the self-image of police officers on screen and in real life.
In the interviews, it became clear how great the influence of idealized crime images is on people's desire to become a police officer. With their ensemble, they condense the collected, conflicting original tones into a funny plot and examine the potential to question the institution. Could reflecting on media representation encourage us to imagine a world without police?"
