Delirio is a contemporary German piece that looks into modern relationships. With both humor and irony, author Falk Richter discusses the pursuit of happiness, personal fulfillment and love in a twenty-first century multimedia society. This theater adaptation by Colectivo The Braiers conveys a couple’s conflicts through different layers of sound.

Can the clandestine nostalgia of freedom and loss of control only be summed up by a torrent of consumerism, by work or by the stock market? Have our hard-earned autonomy and individual self-responsibility turned into a curse?
