M & The Acid Monks

Desert Pop Theatre from Adapt feat. The bianca Story

Based on E.T.A. Hoffmanns „Die Elixiere des Teufels“ („The Devil's Elixirs“)





They talk of drugs, decay and schizophrenia. They love pop, beat and rock'n'roll. Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann's novel "The Devil's Elixir", 'M & The Acid Monks' charts the trials and tribulations of a talented young man treading the thin line separating grandiosity from despair, a monk's asceticism from unbridled excess, as he searches for his own identity, pursued by a doppelganger who sends him insane. Basel band "The bianca Story" is known for its cross-genre projects, and so it is with its 'M & The Acid Monks', which the band worked on with director Daniel Pfluger and musician Victor Moser [Adapt]. 'M & The Acid Monks' blurs the boundaries between theatre, performance and concert and immerses the audience in a world of dreams and nightmares.

Coproduction with Kaserne Basel, KIFF Aarau and Rote Fabrik Zurich (Premiere December 2011)
