Brezel Göring: Unbehagen in der Mittelstufe (2019)
UNBEHAGEN IN DER MITTELSTUFE von Brezel Göring
A theatrical production by Kommando Unbehagen
Director: Christian Genzel
A high-ranking Austrian politician has to put down an uprising of his otherwise blissfully sleeping citizens. A young couple pays their respects to their mother-in-law, who is not entirely averse to alcohol. Criminal teddy bears come to terms with the gloomy everyday life in prison. And a planned kidnapping of politicians goes so wrong that an underexposed folk singer is captured instead. In loosely connected vignettes with romantic titles such as “Dream Job Drinker”, “Intercourse with Relatives” or “How the Measured Decisions of European Heads of State Secure Social Peace”, a crazy world between biting humor and bizarre pathos is drawn – discomfort guaranteed!
The Salzburg theatre group “Kommando Unbehagen” is an association of fearless students of German studies, freelance cultural buffs, and people from the old millennium. Under the loving care of strict director Christian Genzel, the collective takes care of daredevil theatre productions that sneak up on every horizon of expectation. The rough round dance “Unbehagen in der Mittelstufe”, performed in July 2019 at the Literaturhaus Salzburg, was the first production of “Kommando Unbehagen”.
