Pink Valley’s new production Zivilisierte Länder is a mixture of theater, performance and experiment – while at the same time it is discourse, ritual and parody. In German, English and Spanish, the collective deals with personal history and moments of social tension and experiments with empathy as a phenomenon that has to be aesthetically activated. It is a reaction to the right-wing populist tendencies in Europe and an attempt to counteract. How do we create empathy and where does it threaten to fall apart? Through encounters and in the creative engagement with an essential topic, Pink Valley aims to provoke real experiences.
