Our summer production will consist of two original one-acts:

Somewhere In Between


1980 IV: Splashing In Between

Shows in Hamburg:          5-8, 16, 17, 20, 21 June

7.30 p.m.

Audimax, Von-Melle-Park 4

Somewhere In Between is set in a dystopian society. In a circle dependent on pharmaceutical enhancers, Addison is rewarded with a revolutionary substance that will help her finally distance herself from the past and allow her to perform to the Highest Standards of Excellence.
In 1980 IV: Splashing In Between we are told about a society ruled by a dominant group – the Splashers- who ostracise everyone who is different. A young heroine is on a quest to take them down, but how will she gain control of events?

We’ll also be performing Somewhere In Between at

FEATS festival in Munich 30 May – 2nd June
