Marx proposed that one must “make the petrified conditions dance by playing them their own tune.” The Bremen-based theater-maker and musician Michael Rettig seeks to do so with text, movement and music. While one person engages with Marx’s “Capital” and animates the audience to take part and reflect, the other wanders across the stage as a shadow play of restless exploitation and endless accumulation. They are accompanied by the buzzing, chirping and droning of high-performance computers, and by Ulrike Herrmann, editor of the daily newspaper taz.
