MAL – EMBRIAGUEZ DIVINA by Marlene Monteiro Freitas

26, 27, 28 & 29 August, Kampnagel, Hamburg (DE) – WORLD PREMIERE

In order to explore the varieties of evil, a group turns into a choir on a tribune. They are under the influence of haunting inspirations, poisonous testimonies, bacterial impressions, rotten facts. The title of the evening makes multiple references to the ambiguity of evil. On the one hand, the Portuguese “mal” has no single, direct translation: it can mean unease, sorrow, torment, a lack of something, horror or simply evil. The addition “Embriaguez divina” marks evil as a state of divine delusion – and contrasts it equally with the escapism of boundless ecstasy.
