The Citizen.KANE.Kollektiv and Junges Ensemble Stuttgart collectively research the interplay between bodies and consumption. Where does the human being end up in a world that is mastered by money right down to the last inch? What are we ready to do to have money? What kind of power relationship exists between those who consume and those who provide (themselves)? Where are our limits?
CKK and JES jointly investigated the topic of prostitution for two years. The theater makers conducted intensive research into different types of sex work. They met with sex workers, operators of bordellos and social workers, asked questions, received answers and tried to understand. In the spring of 2016 they traveled to Romania together with young people – the country of origin of a large number of sex workers in Germany. The experiences and thoughts of this shared research forms the core of this theater production.

The Citizen.KANE.Kollektiv is made up of seven artists working in the field of the performing arts. It realizes theater productions about current topics and primarily performs them site-specific. Amongst others, it has received funding from the city of Stuttgart, the Baden-Württemberg Innovation Fund and the German Federal Cultural Foundation. Junge Ensemble Stuttgart (JES) is the children’s and youth theater of Stuttgart and has been funded by the city and the state since 2004. It creates five to six productions each year which explore the lives of young people in various formats.
