SUPERHEROES DON'T GO TO THE BATHROOM
Superheroines don't go to the bathroom. They are not hungry either. They don't need to sleep, and they're not pregnant. They are simply there - always ready to save the world. And they're also incredibly fit, good-looking and eternally young. How do they do it?!

Superheroines don't go to the bathroom. They are not hungry either. They don't need to sleep, and they're not pregnant. They are simply there - always ready to save the world. And they're also incredibly fit, good-looking and eternally young. How do they do it?! Dancers also have to be fit, agile, enduring, strong. Female musicians also have to be ready at all times. Unlike superheroines, however, we have very real physical needs. Cravings, aging processes and desires to have children are for us, women on stage, one thing above all: hard work. Magdalena Dzeco and Miriam Berger enter into dialogue with their superheroine alter-egos and ask them how they managed to leave all these human weaknesses behind and still be beautiful, powerful and simply perfect. They work off unattainable body images, societal role models and an elliptical trainer. If it weren't for that gnawing hunger all the time - and when do we actually take a pee break??? Snacks inculsive. After the performance, we invite all audience members to share a meal and exchange ideas.
