Queer Viennese theatre guerrilla Nesterval brings immersive theatre to your home - entertainingly clever, technically advanced and made for those who don’t mind time flying by far too fast.

Champions League fans as well as online gamers, bridge clubs and the audience of Viennese group Nesterval know that playing a game releases the happiness messenger substance dopamine. In Nesterval’s WILLY BRANDT-TEST, spectators become participants. They interview and evaluate eight performers from Vienna and Hamburg in one-on-one conversations. In the course of the investigative search for the team to pass the WILLY BRANDT-TEST, spectators are navigated through various online theatre spaces and finally get into »a virtually brilliant narrative labyrinth ... which raises questions about one' s own capacity for democracy.« (NDR).

The WILLY BRANDT-TEST is an exciting social experiment that explores the relationship between political utopias and totalitarianism in an entertaining way. The starting point for the story is the figure of »Gertrud Nesterval« who was at the centre of European history and collaborated on a revolutionary project. Forty years later, this project is now to be completed - which can only be achieved with the help of the audience, who neither need technical knowledge nor have to get up from their own couch. Theater has rarely been this close to Netflix and Chill. And whoever has ever seen one of their fast-selling shows knows why Nesterval and their queer performance family are celebrated like pop stars in Vienna.

Each player requires their own ticket. You will receive an email in advance of your booked performance about how to log on and play.
