Shame on you

This performance explores the sense of shame from the perspective of artists and individuals. On the one hand there is Shahzad Ismaily, a son of Pakistani immigrants, who grew up in Pennsylvania, studied biochemistry, works as a multi-instrumentalist and owns a recording studio. On the other hand there is Sara Koller, a Swiss farmer‘s daughter who works in meteorology, is specialized in fluid dynamics and is a performance artist. These two people have a completely different background, gender, origin and lifestyle, nevertheless shame connects them. They have shared ten days of their lives together and dare to bring this experiment on stage.
