Property changes consciousness. It divides friends, gives one person power over others and excludes. Property is taken for granted. And people don’t talk about it. Nothing is so constitutive of our society, or our lives together; nothing has such a divisive effect on our community. With “Oratorio”, She She Pop wants to air the secret of property. Together with each choir of local delegates and their audience, the world wide successful performance collective starts a discussion on property and examines their own relationship to ownership, the distribution of goods and its related problems. Inspired by Brecht’s Lehrstücktheorie, they develop rules for a dialogical theatre show and form discordant speaking choruses, which renegotiate with each performance how we deal with property.
