Theatrum Mundi, or, How We Appear In the Wold

A Vestoj Salon at Berliner Volksbühne

We are all actors, audience, observers and co-participants: selves upon selves upon selves. But is there such a thing as a ‘real me’ or a ‘genuine self’? How does one live an authentic life? These are some of the questions addressed in this piece where four performers – a model, an actor, a drag king and a cabaret queen – speak candidly about self-presentation and persona, and about how they each consume, shop and get dressed in order to construct or enact identity.

With: Bridge Markland, Lina Berg, Anne Tismer and Caine Panik
