Cavaliers impurs

HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU3)

Production Details / Press Releases

The duo “Cavaliers impurs” (Troubled Riders) is a cabaret, a collage of genre-bending acts that takes place in a giant opened-out cardboard box. The piece celebrates the art of dance, the cover version, the drag show and features the menopausal dance, and performance art gone adrift. From number to number, the two performers channel a multitude of venerable personalities who come to populate the stage.
