Coffee with Sugar? is a production between material performance, biographical and documentary theater.
The two materials coffee and sugar determine the stage in their most different states. Beginning from them, German immigration stories in Central America and their colonial continuities are negotiated. The performer Laia RiCa grew up in El Salvador and Germany. She brings this biographical experience to the piece: the struggle between two worlds, the constant suspicion of betraying her “roots” and the questioning of feelings of inferiority and superiority. From coffee beans and cotton candy, biographical material and historical sources, video fragments and live music, a visually powerful and dense production emerges.
