Like a theater performance, a party can simply be cancelled. And this is exactly what just happened across the board. But unlike a party, theater can address its own failure, and this is the core of the Access to Excess project. The basic idea is simple and effective: What happens to a club event, what happens to sweaty bodies driven by booming bass and hard beats, if you really do follow all the hygiene rules? The DJ turns into a supervisor and the atmosphere of ecstatic partying coincides with the safety thinking of public indoor swimming pools.
We are particularly interested in which bodily control mechanisms and body/ value concepts are reflected in these practices and to what extent the idea of
constant progress in terms of hygienic possibilities can be deconstructed. Transferred to a contemporary club setting, we investigate with young people choreographically as well as visually how we want to ask and answer the new and old questions about hygiene and ecstasy.
