RAPTURE AND RAGE. Studies on the authoritarian character
The German collective LIGNA, which specialises in media arts and performances, and the Bulgarian artists Stephan A. Shtereff and Emilian Gatsov use an unusual theatrical performance to study fundamentalism and radical communities. In ‘Rapture and Rage’ they address the logic of historical events, theories and analyses, and recreate contemporary processes by turning the audience into protagonist.
The show features LIGNA (Ole Frahm, Michael Hüners, Torsten Michaelsen - production, text, director), Stephan A. Shtereff (concept, director, production) and Emilian Gatsov (music). Translation: Gergana Dimitrova.
