How does pathos manifest itself within the body? How can emotive body images be produced, how can they be undermined and overlaid with new images and movements?

With their new production HYPERBODIES, bücking&kröger investigate these phenomena of pathos, grandiosity and exaggeration. Their focus lies on the body as a mirror of current problems: motifs of swelling and mannerist images of moving bodies.
