In a run-down theatre at the foot of Prenzlauer Berg, the Panda Pussies run a research enclosure on their own account. Their counterpart: HAPPY PANDA, the central figure of a mindfulness coaching programme for children. Seething with rage at so much affect control and depoliticisation even at pre-school age, the Panda Pussies strike back. With their paws they play the keyboard of emotions so that everything gets mixed up and nobody knows who is who any more. And, by the way, they also thwart their own reintroduction into the wild. An inclusive, intergenerational panda bambulism with lots of bamboo.
