Happy Birthday to Me (Working Title no. 2)
A theater project by Ching & Friends

What is the difference between birthday cakes in Taiwan and in Germany? How is the weather in Frankfurt and Belarus? Do you also play “hit the pot” in Russia when celebrating a child's birthday?
And what does a Hongkonger wish for when they blow out their birthday candles? When we talk about cakes and weather, do we actually want to avoid talking about something more important?

This project is about the limit of language and the impossibility of baking the perfect cake. For this special year 2024 we would like to invite you to spend an intimate evening with us. By throwing an electronic music party we would like to share some special cake recipes from our homes, which are as multi-layered as language.

Happy birthday to me!

By and with:
Ching Wen, Crisis Hevonen, Vera Boitcova, Hanna Lau, Jonas Harksen, Linda Gao-Lenders, Laura-Marie Preßmar, Michelle Koprow, Anton Svoboda
