The Night of the Moles

Mousonturm Saal

ALL IN/Performance/Theater

The mole is considered the underdog of mammals. Hobby gardeners, farmers and professional pest control companies have developed countless strategies to finish off the little rodents. But as masters of the
subterranean, swift and nimble, they keep escaping and making even more molehills. Just in time for the start of Welcome to Caveland!, a labour of gigantic moles will leave its familiar biotope and set out on an
expedition through Frankfurt. With pushy curiosity and sufficient understanding of architectural attractions and cultural points of interest, the moles will journey as new Frankfurters through the city’s centre to find a new safe haven at Mousonturm at the end of their parade. Over the subsequent two weeks, the Künstlerhaus
will serve as a base from where they will set out for further excursions into the cityscape.
