In the english title LULLABY FOR SCAVENGERS, which has a poetical appeal, there lies the essence of this wilful production of the London multi-talent Kim Noble: in the way he reflects on our world, he joins melancholy with radical humour. After KIM NOBLE WILL DIE and YOU’RE NOT ALONE, this is the third part of his performance series about loneliness and human longings. Accompanied by a fox and a dead speaking squirrel, he takes us along on his journeys into office buildings at night, up into his attic, and into the forest. In a collage consisting of video and live performances, he tells us about solitude, about farewells beyond individual species and the search for allies. How do we survive in this increasingly destroyed world? What advice do we give to the next generation for their future? And how do we deal with rodents in our attic? To be able to answer these questions, Kim Noble is working as a cleaner, explains the world to a maggot and sends a vacuum cleaner bag into outer space.

The British performance and video artist Kim Noble works on a multidisciplinary basis in the fields of theatre, television, film, visual arts, and comedy, and has won the Total Theatre Award, one of the most prestigious awards for performing arts in Great Britain. His work exposes the human condition in a humorous and provocative way: conceptions of death, sexuality, gender, and religion are lampooned with a dry sense of comedy and tragedy. With his performances, he was invited to the Festival Theater der Welt in Mannheim, the Wiesbaden Biennale, and the Sommerfestival at Kampnagel in Hamburg. He was a part of the successful experimental art comedy duo Noble and Silver, had several guest appearances in cult series, and was a visiting professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Lately, he has developed WILD LIFE, a Live Radio Show with adolescents.
