Do you want to play? — Tiziana Pagliaro brings the characters of her imagination to life on stage.

“Everybody kills themselves, well, they have to pretend to. It’s just theatre, you can do that here.” (Tiziana Pagliaro)

It all began in 2016 with 100 litres of beetroot juice and 100 white shirts which Tiziana Pagliaro and three actors used to create a performative horror piece with live direction at the Theater HORA in Zurich.

In her new work at the Münchner Kammerspiele, she is following up on the joy of special effects, thrills and spills, dance, fighting, family configurations and Bruce Lee films. When is something a game and when is it serious? Who or what can people turn into in horror movies? What makes getting the creeps fun? And where does the horror of everyday life lurk?

Tiziana Pagliaro directs live at each performance. Her direction instructions, the performers’ movements and the music (from live DJ Remo Beuggert) work with and exaggerate motifs from the repertoire of horror effects and pop culture, developing a trance-like pull. Not for the fainthearted!
