Elena Ceausescu’s Wunderkammer

Cigarette buds, golden ornaments and communistic leftovers frame this micro-dictatorship for maximum 6 people. From the backseat of an old junk car the audience meets Elena Ceausescu up close together with the mute and dumb Edna, who becomes both victim and accomplice when the audience is lured into the sub layers of this disheartened universe. The performance is in its essence a mourning for a time lost: Elena’s nostalgic and never-ending attempts to recreate a regime, within the confined space of a car, is set to fail. Dance, video and sound here create a confluent landscape with ironic undertones.
