Carte Noire Nommée Désir
Since the 1980s, a French coffee brand has been advertising its product »Carte noire a coffee called desire« by staging white heterosexual couples. Based on the slogan of that time, the promising director Rébecca Chaillon together with her great ensemble now invites you to a brilliant evening of theater: White desire – and its often racist social imagery – is put in the glaring spotlight in the context of colonization, hypersexualization and exoticization of the bodies of people of color. The view of the body and the stage is deconstructed in dissecting poetic language and biting humor, milk foam battles and cocoa powder clouds, tender scenes of caring as well as acrobatic interludes and audience confrontation by eight virtuosic performers in an image-rich show. Rébecca Chaillon showed a work-in-progress at Kampnagel 2019 and now brings the finished piece back to Hamburg.
