Chinchilla Arsehole, eyey

"No intension, it's just Tourette", Christian Hempel quickly clarifies when meeting new people. He cannot control his rants, insults and motor tics. They are reactions to the world around him. And he is not alone.

Chinchilla Arsehole, eyey from acclaimed Rimini Protokoll is a performance about Tourette with Tourette as a central player. Christian Hempel steps onto the stage with musician and geriatric nurse Benjamin Jürgens and politician Bijan Kaffenberger. They also have Tourette.

Chinchilla Arsehole, eyey is theatre like you haven't experienced it before. At first glance, it would seem impossible to create a theatre performance with Tourette: No manuscript is safe; no movement can be repeated. In addition, there are high standards for security. The players are cursing, making animal sounds and moving uncontrollably.

Chinchilla Arsehole, eyey is not a freak show and much more than a performance about a diagnosis. After the applause is over, it may become clear that this performance isn't really about Tourette. It is about the audience, about theatre and about the fear of losing control.

Reviews

“Chinchilla Arschloch, waswas” does not celebrate being different but instead cele-brates the marvel that is humankind. Nobody is put on display; grown-up, straight thinking humans in all of their brokenness and all of their beauty present themselves"

www.deutschlandfunk.de

"On stage... we see three men with Tourette syndrome, who tell in an astoundingly cheerful manner of their daily struggle with themselves and particularly with a system within which they are seen as disruptive"
