DAILY REVIEW

Puntila
/Matti

by Doppelgangster

It is easier to rob by setting up a bank than by holding up a clerk.
– Bertolt Brecht

It’s seven decades since the white-collars and black magic first combined, and across from the Coke Sign in Kings Cross the alchemy is as powerful as ever.

This electrifying, breakneck odyssey of hate from Doppelgangster (UK/AUS) – world leaders in iconoclastic, political performance – drag Brecht’s Epic of corporate greed into the 21st Century.

Sacrificing their own humanity at the stage’s edge MKA’s Tobias Manderson-Galvin and German performance artist Grace Lauer’s hypnotic and darkly-comic performances will makes Brian de Palma seem banal, Die Antwoord restrained, and Zizek a philistine.

Take a class-war battlefield flashback in this brutalist, sadistic, and prophetic spectacle. Feel a cool trail of sweat down your cheek from a vicious score by Jules Pascoe (JAALA, JazzParty, Husky), guest performance by Antoinette Barboutis (the ethics of paediatric haircut for long hair), and get shockingly intimate with one of the most phenomenal live performance companies in action.

WARNING
Strictly for audiences 18+. Not that we’re checking IDs. Ok. Let’s just say ‘mature’ audiences. How would we even assess that?! Contains adult content, adults, and content. Fine. Teenagers welcome.

SECOND WARNING

Puntilla/Matti takes place in a theatre. Enjoy your seat.

THIRD AND FINAL WARNING
There is definitely going to be one of those ticketing booking fees.
