A story about life, decisions, choices and consequences. The adorable stuffed animals, close to the hearts of adult children brought up on ‘Sesame Street’ and ‘The Muppet Show’, make the bitter pill easier to swallow.
– How easy is it to succumb to propaganda, to be seduced by certain schemes or ideologies that push us towards ever more radical acts? – ask the authors.
Let us stop time for a moment. Let’s look at the principles of the propaganda mechanism. The songs – the main narrative axis of the performance – will be created from fragments of “Mein Kampf”. Musically, we will oscillate between Wagnerian opera and musical classics. We will see how the packaging (the songs) sells the frightening content.
