In "Cheap Blood" Johannes Müller and Philine Rinnnert have developed a new hybrid of artistic genres. Johann Sebastian Bach's cantata "Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut" and the history of the biggest flop Broadway has ever seen "Carrie – The Musical" combine into an overdrive of teenage angst. First love and the experience that the sugar-coated image of your romantic self just doesn't seem to fit into a brutal reality of school, facebpook and youporn culminate in a state of chaos and despair.
Singers, actors and musicians enter the experimental ground of "Cheap Blood", which combines the exuberant and grotesque expressional need of baroque and Broadway. On this ground you won't be surprised by plots of how to destroy the entire planet by telekinetical powers disguised as a divine visitation.

With Jördis Richter, Armin Pommeranz, Hauke Heumann, Cora Frost, Agnieszka Dziubak, Bonnie Cameron, Kirsten Burger and Tayfun Schulzke.
