Alles muss raus!

Laura Kalauz & Martin Schick - CMMN SNS PRJCT


“The duo looks wonderfully bizarre and seduces with successful puns providing food for thought. All that one can expect from a marvellous performance.” Hamburger Abendblatt

The intelligent and cheeky CMMN SNS PRJCT (CoMMoN SeNSe PRoJeCT) by Laura Kalauz and Martin Schick was developed for the Freischwimmerfestival 2011 and is meanwhile successfully on tour. It deals with everyday economic communication and relationship models that have a more or less internalised basis and which are used to trade, negotiate, arrange dates, communicate, and come to agreements – that which is generally known as “common sense”. Therefore, Kalauz and Schick will be presenting a social-critical play that radically demonstrates how problematic and self-exploiting this calculating rationality can be. The two performers take out loans from the audience and auction licences for this and that. Over the course of the evening the project evolves into a social marketplace with idiosyncratic barter relationships. When the play reaches its climax, the two performers even give away the last thing they have: the performance itself will be auctioned off with all the rights as a complete package to the public.
