With MAGGIE THE CAT, Trajal Harrell brings the second part (after O MEDEA) of his “Porca Miseria” trilogy to Kampnagel. His threepart study of “bitches” focuses on strong women from literature and history. The key figure this time is Maggie from Tennessee Williams’ classic “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”. Harrell has created an interior that ranges through the kitchen and the parlour, the bedroom and the veranda, simultaneously revealing and deconstructing the social fabric of a segregated society, while dancing, voguing and celebrating the American South.

In the September/October programme, 3 October is by mistake indicated as the day of the performance. The performances only take place on 4 and 5 October.
