Bodies captive to ideology.
A comedy about exercising bodies and great ideals. About the way gymnastics strengthen national awareness. How a healthy body is not merely home to a healthy mind but also to unhealthy nationalism. Through the intriguing medium of a performative essay, this German independent theatre company explores historical gymnastics movements and the ideal they were guided by – from the opening of the first public outdoor exercise grounds by Ernst Ludwig Jahn in Berlin’s Hasenheide Park in 1811 right up to the ceremonial gymnastics exhibit Turnfest 2017 in Berlin. Eight performers represent the choreographies and ideologies of several different periods in German history and so offer a grotesque catalogue of a show, in which exercising bodies articulate the ideals of an age.
