MEAT @ Schaubühne, Apr 3 -13

31 March 2014

MEAT is a 240-hour large scale performance installation created by Thomas Bo Nilsson and his team, and running at Berlin’s Schaubühne Studio continuously from April 3 to its close on April 13.

Featuring 60 performers “acting in a fragmented universe of both living and commercial spaces”, the installation is inspired by the story of alleged Canadian cannibal killer, Luka Magnotta, who was found and arrested amidst a media frenzy in a small internet cafe in Berlin’s Neukölln neighborhood in June of 2012.

Using his life and self-created online identities as the starting point, MEAT will present an exact replica of Magnotta’s Montreal apartment and the scene of the alleged crime.
