For Richard Wherlock a family is an equation with many variables, a very special system of which almost countless examples exist and which can be regarded as one of society’s oldest institutions. Being related may be a question of biology but being a family is entirely a matter of culture. It is the place where everything originates in which everything happens in microcosm. In this experiment Richard Wherlock presents a family – father, mother, three children – who illustrate a series of scenarios of community and antagonism between the poles of authority and rebellion, between supervision and exclusion. Here the stage of the Kleine Bühne is turned into an imaginary home that is transformed and developed before our eyes in the course of this evening of dance.
