In YESTER:NOW, Nazis and hippies, peace signs and Bluetooth symbols, demonstrations and state authority, religion, pop culture and politics, punk and musicals meet on the same terms in the same space to experience their “15 minutes of fame”. Signs with slogans from protest culture, pop, nonsense, politics and high-tech tag the present; the revolt becomes a lifestyle, the content turns into a catchphrase. Six dancers create a swarm, a cluster of sampled movements, from which individual bodies continuously manage to escape. The attempt to cope with the vast complexity of world affairs produces a mixture of simplifications and showbiz attitudes: subtlety is a thing of the past – it's showtime, baby!
