The performance group dissects the anatomy of visionaries and its medial staging in a kind of a theatrical installation. On stage the group’s music, visual effects, and puppetry manipulate and construct, in an analog/medial way, the illusion of the perfect moment. They analyze the potential of this picture that seems to be ideal and let us look behind the bright face of visionaries.

„[…] a markedly successful fusion of installation, performance, concert, film, material and puppet theater. A hybrid of strange beauty; very atmospheric. Joy Frempong provides the foundation with sounds and songs, sometimes resembling Laurie Anderson but strictly more experimental. This harmonizes excellently with the video images created by Simon Krahl: Using a camera on stage he captures most various materials, visable on three movable screens in almost microscopical seeming magnification. A game of shifting sharpness and light focus, fooling and claiming perception at once. The emotional counterpoint to this appearance of the experimental is delivered by Rike Schuberty. […] Excellent.“ (Steffen Georgi, „Leipziger Volkszeitung“ April, 7th 2012)
