Henrike Iglesias are UNDER PRESSURE. In a brilliant interactive COMPETITION SHOW, the collective dedicates itself to the PERFORMANCE PRESSURE omnipresent in our TURBO CAPITALIST society. The performers compete against each other and the audience can decide who “THE BEST” Henrike is. In doing so, they will try to subvert the violent and disciplining categories of WINNERS and Losers, HOT or not, A PHOTO or no photo and to reduce them to absurdity. By failing evening after evening in front of the online audience.

For Henrike Iglesias, phenomena of popular culture and the mass media mirror social situations and grievances, so they set out to shed a light on them from feminist perspectives. Henrike Iglesias is a theatre collective based in Berlin and Basel, the regular crew including Anna Fries, Laura Naumann, Marielle Schavan, Sophia Schroth, Eva G. Alonso and Malu Peeters. Their theatre of operations ranges from the popular to the political, crossing the personal. Their show OH MY! was invited to such events as the imagetanz festival (2019), the Heidelberger Stückemarkt and the FIBA Festival in Buenos Aires. Most recently, the collective presented their show GORGING at brut in February of 2020.

 

Pressestimmen

“No matter how many privileges you have, you are still under pressure. (...) That has to do with capitalism and a certain product orientation that goes with it – in the end something always has to be produced. We wanted to thematize this contradiction with the game format.” (Henrike Iglesias in an interview by FALTER)

“The online version of UNDER PRESSURE is more than a filmed theater stage. The three performers speak in live cameras, they stage themselves for the camera. (...) UNDER PRESSURE is colorful, funny and reflective.” (Benjamin von Wyl, bz Basel)
