katze und krieg temporarily move into a vacant store. They distribute flyers throughout the city, inviting people to visit them on site and tell them a personal lovestory. In total, katze und krieg collect ten stories. Afterwards, on ten consecutive days, they create each day a performance from one of the love stories and show it publicly to an invited audience on the same evening.

In one the performance “they go crazy” katze und krieg spin around until they fall under a rain of soap bubbles and flour. In the performance “accidentally determined” they kiss each other to unbearable lengths. In the performance “traumhaft tanzen” the two experiment with lifting each other up, carrying each other, or catching the other when they suddenly drop. Over the course of ten days, katze und krieg present their audiences different ways of loving. The person who told katze und krieg their story sits unrecognized in the audience and can review his or her own experience with love in an interpretation by katze und krieg.
