Tonight you will witness marvels the likes of which have never been seen by the human eye. Acts to boggle the mind, dazzle the senses, and tantalise the taste buds. I have searched far and wide to bring you an unparalleled array of performative spectacles! So leave your worries at the door because tonight you are in for a wild ride through the limits of sensual experience. Are you ready for a wild ride through the limits of sensual experience?
Are you ready? Driven by her experience as a drag performer Olympia Bukkakis, Queen of the Heavens and of the Earth, Empress of Despair und Architect of Your Eternal Suffering is going on a journey to discover the manifold relations between a person performing (on stage) and the audience: an everyday weather report, a therapy session, a non-virtuosic cello solo, a talk show derailed by special guest Oozing Gloop, Medea’s claim for revenge and Cher who’s just strong enough. While changing personae and setting with the blink of an eye, »Too Much« slowly grows into the impossible task to hold all these genres together and to deliver on their promises. And just on this tipping point to chaos a space for connection, glitches, euphoria and tragedy opens up.
