Produktion LÓKAL - International Theatre Festival Reykjavík & Kriðpleir Theatre Group

With a mischievous lecture performance, the Icelandic Kriðpleir Theatre Group reveals astonishing insights into the control mechanisms of the human brain.

Imagine strolling around with no particular goal. You suddenly find yourself in a shopping centre. Was that really your intention? And then there you are at the checkout with a piece of cake. And you weren’t even thinking of sweets. It’s all Tiny Guy’s fault. While you are still lost in thought, he has already forced you to pull out your credit card and pay. Who is he?

With a humorous lecture performance oscillating between anarchy, sitcom and Samuel Beckett, the versatile Icelandic theatre-maker Friðgeir Einarsson and his fellow performers set out to unearth the drive of human action. For Tiny Guy is our true master and a synonym for the extremely complex system controlling the brain and the unconscious. Now it’s time to reveal the truth about him. Following in-depth research into the human brain, Einarsson has arrived at the conclusion that humanity is only being battered by global warming and wars because they have nothing to resist Tiny Guy with. Einarsson and his Kriðpleir Theatre Group founded in 2012 have staged three productions so far and now set out to educate people at steirischer herbst as to how our brain really works and how we can regain control over our thoughts and wishes.
