Dear CHEAP Friends,

In these times of crisis, CHEAP has decided to turn to the wise teachings and life experiences of some of the most interesting and glamorous women of this and the past century, namely Angela Davis, Ruth Fischer, Ida Lupino, Susanne Sachsse, Vaginal Davis…and a couple more! Yes, COMMUNIST BIGAMIST. TWO LOVE STORIES is coming! No dry hetero documentary theater here, but instead the danceable mix of banter, blabber and bother that you have to come to expect from CHEAP. Based very loosely on Ida Lupino's proto-feminist '50s film THE BIGAMIST, COMMUNIST BIGAMIST tells an internationalist tale of love, political betrayal and Black resistance. We in the CHEAP cosmos are all thrilled to be putting the final touches on this, our first new production in over five years! It is written and directed by SUSANNE SACHSSE and stars Sachsse as Ruth Fischer + VAGINAL DAVIS as Angela Davis. But, as in any good ol' CHEAP production there are many more of your favorite and familiar faces, voices, images, and sounds on stage + a few new ones. We hope to welcome you in the audience! It's in HAU 3 so it's for an intimate select group of voyeurs. Reserve your tickets today!

Opening Night: December 8, 2011, 8pm
Other performances: December 9/10/11, 2011, 8pm

Liebe CHEAP Freunde,

In Zeiten der Krise greifen wir auf die kühne Lehre und Lebenserfahrungen von einigen der spannendsten und glamorösten Frauen der letzten und diesen Jahrhundert zurück: Angela Davis, Ruth Fischer, Ida Lupino, Susanne Sachsse, Vaginal Davis…und viele mehr! Ja, COMMUNIST BIGAMIST. TWO LOVE STORIES kommt! Kein trockener Het Doku Theater, sondern "the danceable Mix" of blahblah, schmahschmah, und naja, die ihr von CHEAP erwartet. Leicht angelehnt an dem proto-feministischen Film von Ida Lupino THE BIGAMIST (1953) erzählt COMMUNIST BIGAMIST die internationale Geschichte von Liebe, politischer Verrat und Black Widerstand. Wir in CHEAPs Nähe freuen uns sehr die letzte Details zusammen zu bringen an diese –unsere–erste neue Produktion nach fast 5 Jahren! Geschrieben und Inszeniert von SUSANNE SACHSSE und mit Sachsse als Ruth Fischer und VAGINAL DAVIS als Angela Davis! Wie bei jeder CHEAP Produktion gibt es noch dazu viele bekannte Gesichter, Geräusche, Bilder und Stimme zu sehen und zu hören. Und einiges Neues. Wir freuen uns sehr Euch dabei zu haben. Da es intim und intern in HAU 3 wird, soll man schon die Karten bestellen! Siehe die Info oben.

danke und herzlich
