In the former goods station of Alte Boerse the performance KINGDOM will evolve. This participatory improvisation theatre piece is based on dominant-submissive roleplay combined with elements of systemic constellation. It invites the audience into a fantasy world – unreal, nevertheless made of flesh and blood. A mysterious queen reigns over a small, but colorful population. Or is she a king? The court is run by a Master of Ceremony, a fool creates chaos and grace, witches and magicians perform strange rituals. A precise protocol regulates the proceedings, positions are assigned, tasks appointed, favors are given and taken away. Punishment and exile await the disobedient subject. For each visitor a specific role is created, he/she is introduced to the sovereign and then integrated into the hierarchy.
