From "Arctic Hysteria"

Berlin's darkly comedic, pan-theatrical experimental performance troupe Kinderdeutsch Projekts is briefly in town, Fri/27-August 4, with new show Arctic Hysteria. 

And you should go not just for the "parallel universe King Lear in a psychotic snowscape"-sounding plot, or the promise of "Nazi doctors, war-torn sets buried in ash, dance numbers of disembowelment and incest" -- but also because it looks pretty dang cool in an icy home-apocalypse way.

Lively alternative arts space Bindlestiff Studio, recently remodeled, hosts the company, which is renowned for its heady multimedia fables (intense surround sound effects!), like this one, "set in a land of artificial snow and imagined Eskimos" which "follows three ungrateful daughters as they unwillingly inherit a frozen kingdom from their warlord mother -- in the process descending into madness and taking the play with them."

Fear no pure abstraction though (although there will be thrilling glimpses of that) - the play is billed as "part musical, part B-grade incest porn, part disastrous sparkle pop music video."

Sorry I'm quoting so much of the press release here -- it's not just lazy journalism, although I am hungover, it's because you never know what to expect with Kinderdeutsch, except a gratifyingly wiggy experience and an audience of fellow madcap adventurers. The show is produced locally by SNAP: Some New Arts Project. 

Here's a very tiny taste, captured by videographer Stephen Quinones at a recent rehearsal -- "How to dive into a walrus anus and die: preparation."

Oh, do let's.
