»And there are these holes. And you know, two more months and there will be another hole coming. But these holes just shouldn’t appear. Otherwise, health insurance is calling you and telling you „well, there’s a hole. What is this?“ Don’t ever quit a job without having the next employment contract already in your pocket. If you do, another hole will come and who knows how big and deep it’s gonna be. And that is why we will now simply dig the holes here in the ground and then lay ourselves down deep in the holes and look up to the sky. Before the hole comes to you, you come to the hole. You just dig it on your own and lie down. That’s quite a good feeling.«
In the performance "On the moon, there is no wage labour" the Munich based theatre collective raststättentheater explores the significance of the concept of work in our society. The performers create three characters, seriously marked by success, which run into each other in the opening ceremony of a fun park. Throughout the show they explore different worlds of labour and get into fights over the meaning and nonsense of common conventions and over the question how we categorize ourselves and others in this world.
