Music Theatre PerfomanceA multi-layered music theatre performance on the nature of pleasure. Everyone seeks it, we all long for it, and entire societies have been built around it: Oblivia, in collaboration with two musicians, set out on a playful and associative exploration of pleasure through movement, language, sound, and vocalisations. Pleasure invites the audience for an evening encompassing different aspects of pleasure, employing songs somewhere between punk rock and musical as well as sounds produced by the body and electronica. Life’s unique moments, intense sensory impressions, and a feeling of well-being are highlighted in this multi-layered music theatre event that explores our life-long search for pleasure. Pleasure is the third and final instalment in the series Emotions and Politics, in which Oblivia traces the multilayered state of emotional conditions and their personal as well as political implications over three music theatre productions. Pleasure premiered in February 2023 in Stuttgart, Germany.

“Choreographed action and live sound events are precisely attuned to each other, the performers’ movement language characterised by minimalism as well as humour.” – Harry Schmidt, Ludwigsburger Kreiszeitung

For more than twenty years, Oblivia has been creating performances out of movement, dance, language, sound, light, and gesture. Known for their minimalist approach to existential topics that define humanity, Oblivia’s works are playful yet poignant, creating cosmoses out of fragments and worlds out of words on a bare stage.
