a roadtrip into the absolute life

Driven by the longing for a life full of liveliness, katze and krieg set out into the world. They don’t know which way they will go, nor what will happen. But they have one goal: they are looking for freedom.

Each performance is accompanied by five people, who sit on the back rows of a minibus, driven by katze und krieg. During the ride through the suburban and urban surroundings katze und krieg stop again and again, for example to waltz in foreign front gardens, bank branches or on traffic islands. They jump in front of the eyes of the astonished owner into foreign paddling pools, sing love songs for strangers and even invade supermarkets as wild animals. Each roadtrip is unique as katze und krieg encounter always new situations in public space and try out new ideas for interventions of freedom.
