2010 Das Lux-Protokoll

The lux protocol

A piece of the series ›Life is no picnic – The 7 deadly sins‹


How much lust does a family tolerate? ›The lux protocol‹ is the first piece of the series ›Life is no picnic – The 7 deadly sins‹

The protocol of this evening could be a salvation in the history of this family. The father is dead. The family is celebrating. The border between desire and family caress is blurred. The bounderies of the shame of each one of us are examined, exceeded and circumcised. Uninhibited, godlike, and fatally injured ›The lux protocol‹ goes on where language starts to fail.

Warning: It is shot!

»Nicki Liszta brings with her dance theater piece ›Das Lux-Protokoll‹ humour into the Stuttgart dance scene …  – never in a performance all the performers were dead so quickly. The signs on the door of 
Rotebühltheater warn against shooting during the performance – though they do not warn, against the morally and physically violent dance theater attack, behind the puffy-gray satin curtains of a narrow living room. … At the gypsy ska and klezmer polka is now developing a funeral feast of the most absurd kind … with Nicki Liszta dance is not fake, it is not intellectuale and sophisticated but dance what it is in its full force: real and physically, sensual and violent … Well ›Das Lux-Protokoll‹ has something from the danish Dogme films Nicki Liszta relies on, but here the dance is more dissected and absurd. Danced by a brilliant ensemble that dances until total exhaustion. … Who is strong enough to go, should do so.« Angela Reinhardt, Esslinger Zeitung, 12.18.2010
