LA MISSION & KNUCKLE CARTEL PRESENT
a non-Aristotelian Drama in Five Parts
something happens, and then something else.
BERLIN, GERMANY. On February 1st and 2nd, the notorious-glorious record label La Mission & associated performance company Knuckle Cartel will present the first of five performances in their kunst/WORK series. performance/ART 001: a non-Aristotelian Drama in Five Parts is an experimental performance based on the satirical cinematic masterpiece “Network” and La Mission’s the “Time is Up Jazz” EP. Something happens in this image-based, movement-heavy, nudity-promoting performance piece, and then (holy shit!) something else happens. It is staged by Mandie O’Connell (La Mission/Knuckle Cartel/ex-Implied Violence/current swimming enthusiast) and features the intimidating talents of Luis-Manuel Garcia (La Mission/Max Planck Institute Fellow/ex-Parisian/current Berliner), Anja Struck (La Mission/ex-Berliner Ensemble/current cat owner), Magdalena Schnitzler (ex-Berliner Ensemble/Aalto Musiktheater Essen/current Bearded Lady), Laila Cola Weeks (La Mission/ex-Albuquerquean/current Naked Mennonite), and a couple of extremely beautiful people.
The piece will be installed and performed in the charming, dungeon-like doom cellar at Tischendorf, a cozy coffee shop on Friedelstrasse. The half-hour piece will be performed twice each evening. Upon arrival, audience members will be assigned to the first or second performance of the night. Because the coffee shop will remain open throughout the show, audience members can drink coffee & wine or dine on cake & cookies before and/or after witnessing the boobs & the carnage.
