„400 ASA are a crazy mix of actors, amateurs, dancers, musicians and authors drawn from all corners of the world. This ever-changing ensemble has been around since 1998. With „Bekenntnis 99 (Confession 99), the group defined its own highly provocative „dogma for a simpler and cheaper method of doing theatre: no props, no hidden technique, no illusions.
»MEDEÄÄ. 214 Picture Descriptions.« (Multimedia Performance)
based on „Medea-Film by Lars von Trier
The archaic material collides with the dismal image worlds of the Danish film magician. Outstretched sheets serving as a simple backdrop, a mobile projector as the sole source of light. Hazy scenes, imageless flickering – a film that you don’t see is re-enacted. A film crew, a smart TV announcer who commentates all the sequences. Violence is inevitable, if one is supposed to look good in this bloody drama, in which Medea loves Jason and exacts a terrifying revenge on him for taking her rival Glauce as a lover. MEDEÄÄ is a harsh dissolution, a scenic sampler where theatre, film, sound, myth and reality powerfully entwine; dynamic, anarchic, disrespectful; the force and the destructive passion of an extraordinary woman are always in sight.
