is an award winning Avantgarde-Chanson-Show between music, literature, artificial intelligence and theater. Through the electrifying sound univers of chanson, oriental and experimental with spoken words in a variety of languages, Scharmien Zandi explores different dimensions of social issues: in the space between new feminism and patriarchal structures of sexism is where we find our nuances of freedom and individualism in AMOUR FOU, the crazy love.
I want to lick over your face, sleep with your best friend,
caress your amygdalla, sew a dress out of your beard,
drink you, love you, strangle you.
A curious look into the secrets of strangers! Moments of boisterous lust, raging jealousy, excessive love, grueling doubt, dramatic world pain, energetic rage or dull loneliness.
AMOUR FOU won the Austrian Musictheater Award 2020
