Collective B plays with different aspects of violence, as well as with representing it in various, most exaggerated and intense shapes. Mainly, Mourlam is referring to violence presented as entertainment, creating a confrontation on stage between pleasure and pain, in which the viewer might slip into passivity, voyeuristic fascination, anxiety and emotional shocks.

Contemporary dance, physical theatre and live music weave together into a massacre on the scene. Somewhere between realism and slapstick, the two main characters “Peace” and “Love” will fight relentlessly against violence. Violent images, taken from the media, transposed by movement and music, with seriousness or humour, create paradoxes and at the same time clarify and widen the meaning of violence.

Expected premiere: February 2020 at WUK performing arts, Vienna.
