Eight remote con­trolled robots and their gigan­to­ma­ni­ac hifi-sys­tem-teacher are the actors of the Ham­let pro­duc­tion Black Box which was spe­cial­ly devel­oped by the artists group gold extra from Salzburg. The stage scene of the work (stage: Susanne Hiller) was hon­ored with the stage scene price Offen­bach­er Löwe.

In the con­text of the plateau arte­fakt the robots con­sist­ing of old turnta­bles, mag­ne­to­phones, wash­ing machines and oth­er tech­ni­cal relicts will inhab­it the quitch for two weeks.
