Gods Entertainment – Trans-Europa- Bollywood

God’s Entertainment invites audiences to join them on an unconventional journey to an Indian bazaar (luxury first-class flight included) – and right into the chaotic world of Indian clichés. Through a love story that includes music, colourful scarves and a wealth of emotions the Austrian group has created a theatre event that critically examines and parodies Bollywood films. The space in which the spectacle takes place is turned into a transfer space: the audience experiences a journey to distant India, choreographed group dances and finally ends up at the flat of the Indian bloke around the corner.

God’s Entertainment
God's Entertainment is a collective of one of the most experimental theatre groups in Austria. These players are involved in the fields of performance, happening, visual art and sound, and continually try to redefine the nature of performance, which has fallen out of favour in contemporary theatre and other media. Their work conflicts with Austria's political and cultural identity. God's Entertainment does not just use the stage for its performances; many scenes are played out regularly within the public sphere. By 2007, God's Entertainment had already received its first invitation to the Theatre Festival IMPULSE to perform its works FIGHT CLUB – Realtekken and Stadt ist anders.

Super Nase & Co
Trans-Europa-Bollywood will be performed by the group Super Nase & Co. Their work aims to reduce the aesthetic and artistic demands of an audience. The performance minimises these expectations to such an extent that it makes the show by God's Entertainment appear dazzling by comparison. But, at the same time, Super Nase & Co's plays cannot be criticised to any serious degree. There are no reservations when it comes to expression. The methods of depiction range from performances, through installations, right up to photographic works in the theatre and public spaces.
