Seen Live: Schwalbe speelt vals

Two teams of four players play a game. The aim of the game is to strip the opposition of their clothes. It starts out as fun and games, and it’s hilarious to watch. Gradually, the players lose themselves in the game, and it becomes more physical, harsher even. At times, it’s unpleasant to look at.

For a show with no dialogue, Schwalbe speelt vals made me think a lot.
