My German wife and I recently went to a free performance held at the Staatstheater in Hannover, Germany. It was a pretty spontaneous decision, and we had absolutely no clue what we were about to see. The show was called ‘Empört Euch,’ and it turned out to be a weird-as-hell vaudevillian performance featuring: people in fat suits; Eric Cartman singing about minorities at the water park; a unicycle-riding, shotgun-toting Teletubby; three idiots dressed up as twirling ladybugs, a frightening, spastic pantomime, an eardrum rupturing cover of the Tom Waits song, “The Black Rider;” and finally, a concert by a scary ‘bastard pop’ group.
