No fear without courage
Performative music theatre (60 minutes)
Premiere: 08.03.2017, Theater Rampe, Stuttgart



In NORM IST F!KTION #2 NAF take the audience  into a maze of norms. They grant insights into their biographies, personalities and decisions. They work with their not standardised bodies – they are how they are: different, beautiful, wild, sexy and weird – in constant search of the own identity. In a jungle of quotes they get involved into dialogues, they play on a sheer endless keyboard, sing, provoke each other, despair, calm down, get naked and force themselves into roles which conflicts with their humanity.

As humorous as melancholic, as fragil as pompous music, bodies and quotes clash and examine the brutality which strikes adaptation to norms in order to draw courage for utopia: the possibility to break free from norms.
NORM IST F!KTION is a multi-piece, transmedial concept. The parts are built upon each other, cross public space in several steps and condense into a performative music theatre: NAF are on a artistic quest illuminating ruls, principles and patterns in our daily life.
