The Soul Catcher
4. October @ 19:00 – 20:30
The Soul Catcher is a seductive and deeply disturbing theater performance about psychological violence, manipulation, control and power. The show is created at the intersection of theater, dark cabaret and performance art. The Soul Catcher focuses on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), which is characterized by a lack of empathy, destructive self-worship, scheming reality staging, the search for validation and the predation of other people.
The Soul Catcher is:
- A black-humored theater performance about the modern predator.
- A scenic commentary on today’s societal and cultural values.
- An alarm clock, a survival kit, a survival strategy.
The Soul Catcher challenges audience conventions. As in any narcissistic relationship where abuser and victim are mutually dependent on each other, the audience plays a crucial role. We play with the nature of the narcissist by first blinding and seducing, and then gradually manipulating the relationship between performers and audience.
With black humor, charm, intelligence and unpredictability, we create a universe that slowly pushes the boundaries to create debate about control, power, empathy and personal responsibility.

The Soul Catcher premiered in Bora Bora in January 2020. The show has subsequently played at Teater Momentum, The Royal Danish Theatre and Helsingør Teater / Kulturværftet.
