In SHOW DOWN, the audience accompanies the performer on a social experiment in a search for our own origins and experiences a history of the modern individual. The struggle for personal needs is contrasted with the ever-critical gaze of fellow human beings. When we look at ourselves today in the mirror of our relatives -the human apes-, one bad habit of humans particular comes to light: we place ourselves above other living beings. Even we have much more in common with our ancestors than separates us. SHOW DOWN is a search for an identification, which demands a lot from the human being and forces him to dive in, to look back and explore our heritage and let us mirror by this.
Presented as part of Stockholm Fringe Festival
