Meat Loaf, the Body. Meat Loaf, the Artist. Meat Loaf, the Indestructible Force. Meat Loaf. Dancer. Actor. Rocker. Patriarch. Macho. Super-Uber-Animal. Lone wolf and fat kid «who would do anything for love». Is he the embodiment of decadent tenderness meets beast incarnate transformed into an all-consuming force of nature? His desire is demanding, challenging and immortal: Would I rather be Meat Loaf or the woman at his side? Julia Gräfner and Anna Wille explore the fascinating persona of Meat Loaf in a solo show developed in collaboration with Cora Frost. Oscillating between role-play and ego shoot, they engage in a game of intimacy and melancholy, of physicality and brute force. A sharp incision into the flesh of the Super-Uber-Animal. A evening of breathing and sweating, of eroticism and physicality, of masculinity, femininity, of brute force and the EGO in the Meat.
