Imagine a trip that ends up in a kind of Tupperware party, only that this time the products on sale are magnetic field therapy gadgets. After a two-hour coach ride the guests are welcomed in a run-down restaurant at the riverside that has had its times in the 70's. There, you witness an almost three-hour long show and a salesman who performs at his best. As the only actor, he talks and plays with full dedication. He gives all he can: his mind, his body and his soul.

EXCURSION takes a closer look at this trip and partly reconstructs it only to offer itself for sale at the end.

EXCURSION is a piece as it should be. Come and buy!

A production by Martin Nachbar and Schaubühne Lindenfels, Leipzig.

Supported by Künstlerhaus Mousonturm
