Witty, energetic and forcefully lead by an all-female cast, Spektakel reveals an absorbing world of crooked characters, rivalling relationships, melodrama and intimacy. With an on-going fight for dominance and spotlight, Spektakel comically confronts the audience and invites them to question the relationship between performance and identity, theatre and society.
While positioning itself as a light-hearted celebration of the imaginative and the playful, Spektakel also places a satirical commentary towards a culture where identities seem increasingly performed, relationships staged and life a theatre of the absurd.
What is prompting the fight for the spotlight?
