Express Fight Club
Express Fight Club is a performance on the question how and by what identity is generated. The novel and movie Fight Club (by Chuck Palahniuk / David Fincher) are not important for the project – the sources’ idea of forming a subversive group is. The Post Theater has created a Fight Club: A Chorus with 48 performers in Singapore and Berlin (National Museum of Singapore, 2007, State Opera Berlin, 2008). Express Fight Club is a further development of these performances with local performers. Different versions in several languages have been created / presented in Spain, Taiwan, Germany and Bulgaria. The performance uses media technology as well as performance elements in a way that challenges the audience’s understanding of contemporary theater and dance.
