Egoland is a Swedish-Cypriot-German Collaboration under the direction of Achim Wieland which investigates our complex “Ego” and the subtle impersonal and global forces which leave us exposed and vulnerable to any new dogma, political movement, religion, populist sentiment or heroic figure. Where is the threshold in which we accept oppressive behavior, forfeit individual freedom for national interests, eventually excuse even the most atrocious acts of injustice and violence?
The devised performance questions our motivations and choices to live as critical πολίτες (citizens) or to remain lost particles in a silent mass, pulsing to the rhythms of powerful forces we cannot understand, partake in, or reply to.
Walking the tightrope of fiction, true story and “alternative fact”, Egoland entangles its audience in a volatile mix of celebrities, dogmas, nationalistic ideals and role models against a backdrop of an eroding sense of community and populist rage.
