In Familiodrom, Interrobang gives birth to a child together with the online audience. Immediately the freshly baked parents' collective is stuck in the ideological swamp of cloth diapers, ready-to-eat porridge, sleep training, shame and guilt. Does our child go to the multicultural day care center, or to the white Waldorf kindergarten with individual talent development? Is our child allowed to decide for itself when it wants to brush its teeth? In the moral war about the pacifier, it's all about the whole: What is the human image behind our idea of education? Inspired by Rousseau's classic Emil or About Education, Interrobang advocates a performative empowerment in which basic social questions are negotiated. At crucial points in the narrative, the online audience can intervene, vote and influence the child's development. The outcome of this educational experiment is different every evening. Does it lead to a new family hell or to a better society? And how does the child feel about it?
INTERROBANG include Till Müller-Klug, Nina Tecklenburg, Lajos Talamonti and Guests. The group develops new theatre formats in order to discuss current social phenomena and questions. In installative theatre spaces and participative game settings, the audience can experience, test and reflect on new scenic communication models. Playing with theatrical community thus becomes playing with present and possible future social forms and value systems. Interrobang performs on stages in the German-speaking countries and at international festivals (Heidelberger Stückemarkt, Impulse Theater Festival, Festival Akcent Prague, NONAME Festival Meyerhold Theatre Centre Moscow, Ivan Franko Theatre Kiev, etc.) interrobang-performance.com
