Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker

Dawn of the Revolution

World Premiere

The organisers and performers assume no liability for life and limb!

After just two European tours the theatre-maker Toco Nikaido and her troupe Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker have taught the continent a lesson in fear in matters of Japanese digital, pop, everyday, and political culture. With exaggerated hysteria, Japanese teeny culture becomes a battlefield of fascistoid societal processes. Maximum sensory overload, garish costumes, bellowed slogans, chaos, water, confetti, colour, and algae are the hitherto weapons of the genetically manipulated cheerleader monsters, which have been drawn in their orgies with the audience. Also their new work – a world premiere to mark their Austrian debut at donaufestival – promises not to break with the good old Berserker tradition in any way. Although we live in an analogue world – the tangible world before our eyes – we put our hopes time and again in fake realities created by digital media. Toco Nikaido’s world is impregnated with convoluted and intoxicating odours of rampage and revolution. Can you manage to find order in this chaos or coolness in the heated emotions to survive in this realm? Do you hazard a brief glance in the world that you cannot see? When you find that it is an act to throw away something in your own life by casting your commodified body into this performance, then there is the chance to experience death and rebirth in the spirit of Toco Nikaido.
