* Callcenter Übermorgen at Heidelberger Stückemarkt *
“Callcenter Übermorgen is a challenging, brilliantly staged and utterly funny performance-installation, which tackles questions around self-optimization and (un)freedom of choice with compelling suggestive power.” (Mannheimer Morgen)
What could my life look like had I followed a different path? Callcenter Übermorgen (Callcenter – The Day After Tomorrow) is a telephone journey, taking you through voice-activated menus and decision labyrinths, past the dizzying heights and depressive depths of a 21st century life under the pressure of self-optimisation.
“Political, intelligent, rousing and strongly performed.” (Der Rheinpfalz)
