Bullestress

By Fatima Moumouni und Laurin Buser

Staging: Suna Gürler

*** Content warning: This production contains verbal descriptions of racially motivated violence and revenge fantasies and can possibly have a retraumatising effect. We recommend the production for people aged 14 and over and offer accompanying workshops, introductions and follow-up discussions on the topic. The performance can be left at any time. ***

Astro, Ella, Damn, Nabil and Mari are a gang, a bubble, a band. They have just produced their first song and, sure, they swear: It's going to be a bomb. Unfortunately, another bomb hits first: a case of racist police violence in their immediate vicinity. None of the five is left cold by the incident, but their world is getting colder. How they all deal with the issue of racism divides the friends. But silence is not an option, especially when you have a few good beats in your bag and a lot to say anyway. But first of all, everyone has Bullestress. Even the cops themselves.

The new play by Fatima Moumouni and Laurin Buser is an activist coming-of-age story made and based in Switzerland, with a smooth sound and strong statements. Suna Gürler directs the play with five young people from here, for here, or us.

 

The racism-critical library
will be open before the start of each performance (7:00 pm) until after the performance (10:30 pm). The opening will take place on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, at 7 pm.

Vor der Premiere von Bullesterss wirft Enno Rennenkampff mit dieser Interviewreihe ein Licht darauf, was es bedeutet Theater und Kunst zum Thema Rassismus und Polizeigewalt zu machen und an einer solchen Produktion beteiligt zu sein. Pauline Avognon, Maturand*in und momentan Teil des Theaterjahres, spielt Ella. Pauline stand letztes Jahr mit dem Club 4 auf der Bühne des Schauspielhaus Zürich.
