          Attention

          Both SHOWS will be filmed for documentation-, press- and marketing-related purposes.

          Follow Us bring Henrik Ibsen’s best-known female figure into the present and transfer her to the retirement home.

          As in Nora’s Doll’s House, there is no lack of rigid structures and paternalism, but the motto “nothing to lose – nothing to expect” also opens up a space of possibilities. Does the actual reality of the individual only emerge when the word "future" disappears from the vocabulary? Between cake scent and icebox, cosy fireplace and fridgid snow storms, the audience is confronted with manifold fantasies about a future possible for all of us: the “old people’s home”.

          ANNINA MACHAZ and MIRA KANDATHIL / FOLLOW US met during their acting studies in Bern. With their first joint performance about the icons Marilyn Monroe and Amy Winehouse they won the Premio Young Talent Award and toured through Switzerland. Their second piece Ask the Oracle premiered in early 2018 at Gessnerallee Zurich. The two are performers as well as directors and authors of their works. In addition to theatre productions, they are also known for their activities on social media, e.g. the Hashtag #WirSindBesserAlsCastorf.
