In Familiodrom, Interrobang gives birth to a child together with the audience. Immediately the freshly baked parents' collective is stuck in the ideological swamp of cloth diapers, ready-to-eat porridge, sleep training, shame and guilt. Does our child go to the multicultural day care center, or to the white Waldorf kindergarten with individual talent development? Is our child allowed to decide for itself when it wants to brush its teeth? In the moral war about the pacifier, it's all about the whole: What is the human image behind our idea of education? Inspired by Rousseau's classic Emil or About Education, Interrobang advocates a performative empowerment in which basic social questions are negotiated. At crucial points in the narrative, the audience can intervene, vote and influence the child's development. The outcome of this educational experiment is different every evening. Does it lead to a new family hell or to a better society? And how does the child feel about it? Not only can the audience in the theater vote, but also the audience online.
