In times of a pandemic, going to the theatre becomes a distant memory that slowly fades away. The German collective She She Pop is unable to show their performance Canon in front of an audience. Such an uncontrolled means of transmission from an individual body to the euphoric collective of all those present is a highly questionable act at the moment. But they do vow to carry the torch on. In fragmentary accounts, they will conjure up unforgettable stage moments from memory and narrate a canon of the evening, together with their audience.
To do this, She She Pop are switching to a medium just as transient as theatre, albeit not as public and thankfully less infectious, at least in these times: individual telephone conversations. Call centre, helpline or hotline: Kanon Remote isn’t a show, it’s a service. Whoever calls up will get one of the cast of Kanon Remote on the phone and hear about an essential moment in the performing arts. But the list is also open for your own tales and entries into the canon.
Instructions for participation will be posted a few days before the festival.
