QUAST & KNOBLICH
You can eat chocolate after a meal, you can have it with your best friend. You can even drink it in order to get energized, because your soul is asking for it, or because you are going through a time of uncertainty and you are looking for answers to questions that seem unsolvable no matter how long you are pondering.
Every being needs a certain amount of care and the soul is no exception. And so Hendrik Quast and Maika Knoblich take it upon themselves to look after its cleanliness and order: The traces that the chocolate grounds leave behind are transformed into the future. By using the practices and methods of fortune telling, the duo Quast & Knoblich deduce what lies in store for the audience and the world. By means of chocolate a sun-oracle will be created which presents the past and promises glimpses of a new future.
