Henrike Iglesias is Under Pressure. In a brilliant, interactive gameshow, the collective devotes itself to the pressure to perform, which is omnipresent in our turbo-capitalist society. The performers compete against each other and the audience gets to decide who is "the best" Henrike. But the Henrikes will try to infiltrate the strict and violent categories of winners and losers, hot or not, photo or no photo; leading them ad absurdum - by failing, night after night, in front of a packed audience. Scores may be given live or by remote access, at the touch of a button. So, it’s gonna be absurd, but fair.

There will be English subtitles. The conversation is as relaxed as your home environment: Make yourself comfortable and adjust the sound volume and light level on your computer to your needs. If you want, you can turn on and off during the show, retreat to another room for a break or simply close your laptop. Silence is, of course, not obligatory. The information on accessibility will be continuously updated. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact email@example.com or 030 29 87 00 35.
