História do Olho / Story of the Eye

A Porn-Noir Fairy Tale / Janaina Leite, Brazil

European premiere ¡Adelante!

in Portuguese with German supertitles

»Some of the performers star in porn films in real life. On stage, they turn into fantastic experts of their day-to-day lives and deliver a performance beyond clichés, showing what they do and why.« — The Curators 

Twelve performers, some of them amateurs, some of them professionals, tell the story of three teenagers making their first sexual discoveries. The answer to the question: »What is your relationship with pornography?« allows for the »Story of the Eye« by Georges Batailles and the experiences of the performers to intersect. This play recreates the black fable in between vulgarity and sublimity, the mundane and the cosmic, frivolity and abyss. There will be live music and pornographic scenes during intermission. 

In the Brazilian scene, Janaina Leite is known for her research on the »real in theatre«. Her work took her to France, Spain, Portugal, Chile and Mexico among others.
