Let Them Hear Chaos

Labor II
Performance mit Texten von Kae Tempest

Kae Tempest's album "Let Them Eat Chaos" is an angry call to action, against social injustice, against brutalisation and political violence, for more empathy, togetherness and hope in the chaos. Based on this album and other poems and songs by Kae Tempest, the young people from Lab II improvised and created a wild collage of texts and sounds. Chaos becomes audible and tells of divine, young, old, fictional and experienced stories. "The stories are there, just listen."


As Kae Tempest supported a BDS call in 2017, in the course of which there were discussions about a possible antisemitic stance of Tempests, we point out that Tempests' texts do not contain any antisemitic positions. We emphasise: Theatre an der Ruhr firmly rejects positions as represented by organisations and groups such as BDS.
