Can you get too old to play?
What happens if it’s no longer allowed to play the games you play?
Once upon a time in the NRW (Germany), concepts of reality and fiction crash as the good, the bad and the ugly are made possible.
This Western dance-theater performance points to the conflict between the old and new, making it a fertile ground for good stories, bad stories and ugly stories to be told. Which are outdated? What stories can be unleashed, and which have to be tamed?
‘’SO THEN I SAY: According to the new law, we are not supposed to gather.
AND THEN HE SAYS: I won’t let anyone but God decide over me.
AND THEN I SAY: But we did not gather. We just turned out to be in the right place at the right time.
