“i’m trying to be me and it’s so hard’ 
Selbstporträt mit Kater presents the best five minutes of a self-portrait gone out of hand. In this piece ‘Self I’ suddenly encounters the clone ‘Self II’ in the role of a lifetime. Selbstporträt mit Kater reveals the moment when an emancipated actor storms out of his theater-ensemble and union forever and buys ‘peanuts’ with his last money for an abstract dance performance inspired on the poems of Gertrude Stein. Selbstporträt mit Kater can be perceived as a micro-reflection on D.I.Y., queer- and cyber culture from a hangover-perspective.

Further on we’re looking for the absence of expertise and the evolution of the decline of old elites in the form of a theatrical adaptation of defrosted pizza with extra’s.
“I feel like a boner that already happened.”
