Continuing their infiltration of Jazzfest Berlin through creative interventions underneath, on top of and next to the stage during the past two festival editions, the musicians of the Berlin based collective ultimately discard the idea of the stage in its entirety. Like weird ghosts of the here and now, they populate abandoned places and travel to crisis-stricken locations throughout the city, seeking to catch the absurd of the ʽnew normalʼ on video.
