“A journey into the dark corners of your soul. No drugs necessary.” (Thomas Frank, art director of Vienna’s brut-Wien theater)
Two women brought together by a dark bond, two times long hair. Night Tripper, which usually starts after sunset, consists of several layers of meaning: a forest path, a concert performance, a ritual, and a social event. It takes the audience with it into the nighttime forest; you will even experience elements of voodoo.
The Prague performance features six performers, special instruments, numerous art installations, and a 16-member Czech choir. It explores nature as an animist place of healing and destructive forces, a place of immanence and transcendence.
