Warten auf GOTO
As the current captain of the Vienna Metroblog, I’d like to apologize personally for the large amount of monochrom-related content lately. It’s not so much that not much is happening right now, it’s just that the monos are really that good. Trust me. With that set aside, let’s roll:
monochrom is back on stage – and for everyone who saw, no, witnessed Udo 77, this is a good thing. Their newest brainchild is called “Warten auf GOTO”, a play on “Waiting for Godot” by Samuel Beckett (who would have celebrated his 100th birthday tomorrow, by the way). “Warten auf GOTO” is set in a post-war society – post-Fraakh-war, to be precise.
“Working conditions are terrible, and it’s almost impossible to finance a higher education. A halomester costs a lot and has to be financed through cumbersome part-time jobs. monochrom visits a Xeremarianian student and a xenosociologist around the campus of Largos in their everyday live inside a society of control.”
Since the play premieres on April 21st, I can’t tell you yet if “Warten auf GOTO” is an elaborate satire of modern life as a postmodern human in a postindustrial society, or just one large ball of monkey business. Whatever it is, it’ll be intelligent, fun, and insanely great – I promise. And after the premiere, you can expect a fanboyish review by yours truly.
The play will be shown on April 21st, 22nd, 26th, 27th, and May 2nd and 3rd in the Volkstheater Hundsturm, Margaretenstrasse 166 in the 5th district. Tickets cost 10€ and are available through the box office or by calling +43152111400.
Be there, or be a steaming pile of kaarf!
