PENG! PAlast in co-Production with:
Schlachthaus Theater Bern , Lofft Leipzig & Theater Chur

An homage to Stephen King’s works, this world premiere devised piece began with a three-week film shoot in Maine, USA and culminated in a six-week devising process in Bern, Switzerland.  

With an immersive environment design and a blend of video and live performance, KING was a Grand Guignol-style experiment in creating horror in the theatre. After playing at all three co-producing theaters it toured central Europe from 2013-2016, with performances at the Rote Fabrik in Zurich, the Sophiensaele Berlin, and the East Coast Horror Festival in Bern.

" Splendid [...] you look for evil in faraway America, and you find it in yourself. [...] Along with really strong theatrical moments: with intense monologues that speak of the fears within oneself, of the sources from which they grew and the mechanisms with which they solidify."
