In times of a pandemic, going to the theatre becomes a distant memory that slowly fades away. She She Pop are unable to show “Canon” (which premiered at HAU Hebbel am Ufer in November 2019) in front of an audience. Such an uncontrolled means of transmission from an individual body to the euphoric collective of all those present is a highly questionable act at the moment. But they do vow to carry the torch on. In fragmentary accounts, they will conjure up unforgettable stage moments from memory and narrate a canon – evening for evening anew, together with their audience.
To do this, She She Pop are switching to a medium just as transient as theatre, albeit not as public and thankfully less infectious, at least in these times: individual telephone conversations. Phone tree, helpline or hotline: Telephone Canonisn’t a show, it’s a service. Whoever calls up will get one of the cast of “Canon” on the phone and hear about an essential moment in the performing arts. But the canon is also open for your own tales and entries.
