Kur-Guerilla

Ein Invalidenballett
(Spa Guerilla
A Ballet For Invalids)
Kur-Guerilla
3F / 4M

In a stylish Spa, five patients with back problems are battling against early disablement with the help of gymnastics and massage. But the insurance companies have to cut back: one of them must leave, either as cured, or otherwise to go under a surgeon's knife. None will volunteer to give up their spot, so they decide to have a vote. Immediately the battle to preserve one's invertebral disks begins - there are a few attempts of collusion before the vote, to avoid unpleasant surprises. The seemingly democratic process turns into a disaster. A general show of purposeful solidarity to oppose these budget cuts seems their last hope. But is it truly possible to seriously go on strike while sitting on gym balls?
