This multi-media choreography for 30 local performers, deals, like the novel Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, with questions of self-images beyond social and professional definitions: Is our
profession really our calling? What defines our self-image if it does not work? Express Fight Club shows how the formation of a group can occur very quickly. The play is not interested in
“machismo” and violence, but in alternative forms of subversion. After enthusiastic responses at the dance night in Berlin, Spain, Bulgaria and Taiwan, the latest version of this "choreography
machine” will be presented for the first time in Germany, in Weimar.
"Technically perfect and original."

The group post theater explores in its work, how to develop new possibilities and spaces with the help of simple media sources, for theater.
The media is a performer in a game, in which the boundaries between "live" and "pre-produced" and sometimes "performer" and "spectator" are indistinguishable from one another.
