The world becomes daily more unjust, the network of political and economic dependencies becomes ever denser: Against this background, Hagen Rether has strippers, straw men and scapegoats raised. The so-called social consensus he puts on his feet from the head and the system questions right in the package: From the religious "freedom" on the economic growth to the state "license to kill" everything comes to the table. But the responsibility is not borne by "the powerful" alone - we, their more or less willing collaborators, must pull ourselves out of our comfort zone by our own hands so as not to plunge into the abyss that we have shoveled together.

The truly inconvenient cabaretist exposes so many people's wrath, including his rhetoric on "The Up There", as subordination - the unwillingness to overcome our own fatal habits. Cabaret does not change anything? Rether's funny as well as painful, up to three and a half-hour program infects the audience with two dangerous viruses: the dissatisfaction with simple explanations and the realization that we all have the power to change.

LOVE, as the title of the constantly mutating program, which has been constant for years, does not appear in it, at least not in the form of hearts that find each other - and, at best, the music of the versatile pianist is romantic. But what is visible in his brilliant plea for compassion is the philanthropy of a cabaret artist who believes in enlightenment and in the possibility of conversion still on the edge.

Süddeutsche Zeitung: "Linguistically polished and tough as no other, there defends an intellectually disappointed intellectual, an injured soul pursues enlightenment in its most furious form, with all that the arsenal of irony, sarcasm and cynicism engenders . "

Duration of the performance about two hours and 30 minutes, plus 20 minutes break
