A confrontation with our own ideologies

Welcome to ‘Mount Average’. During this performative journey, Julian Hetzel takes us on a factory visit that confronts us with our own ideologies. This time, the theatre maker grinds statues of rulers, dictators and tyrants to dust to give them meaningful new meaning. 

‘Mount Average’ questions acquired rights, traditions, privileges and wealth, ideologies and totalitarian ideas, aspects that every (post-colonial) society carries with it. In this industrial environment, the clash between the static past and the fluid present creates a productive friction that stirs up a lot of controversy.

Julian Hetzel's performances are attempts to unravel the world, while trying to provide strategies to transform it. In his work, he provides speculative methods that offer possibilities to deal with both the trauma (of the past) as well as with the challenges of the present. This time, hands on.
