The Honey House
No pain, no gain?
In The Honey House five performers unfold a range of actions and gestures that emerge from a context characterized by competition, self-enhancement and constant time pressure. The contemporary moment is marked by mixed feelings: shocked but bored, ambitious but cynical, highly connected but miserably individual, tireless but exhausted. The promise of the good life functions as a gym without exit; gain and pain succeed one another in an ever-accelerating loop of intensity. What kind of bodies, subjectivities and relationships does this produce? And how could we resist them?
