DADA is the sun, DADA is the egg, DADA is the police of the police.
R. Huelsenbeck, 1916.
Neo Neo DADA is the gherkin's little sister, the tax man of the Internet and the best detonator for a neoconservative Mars mission. Burmester & Feigl reanimate DADA's ghosts with 15 performance artists from all over Europe and a radical experimental house band, Ole Wulfers and Mark Boombastik. Their new old strategy: Frontally assault making sense and useful art with nonsense and riot. Nobody is saved here, nothing is explained and nothing will ever be all right. Here we disect, explode and loot. Neo Neo DADA is an autopoietic synchronous cabaret, a pandemonium of layering and superimposing. Or: Everything happens at once, the audience is in the thick of it, the bar is always open.
Climbing over coffee tables, velvet chairs and beer crates, the performers occupy splinters and fragments left by useless authorities. Burmester & Feigl mix and sample live performances, visual art, sound art, new music, club culture, spoken word and theatre. Neo Neo DADA's evening entertainment never ends. The cabaret in the Sophiensæle-Kantine has a bar, a lounge, a porta potty there is a party every night. Outisde it stinks of fear. Come in everyone, quick. Here is not here. Now is only now.
