The Uncle Hans-Peter Party

From the creators of Francis and Homo Zombies comes a ‘Let Me Feel Your Finger First’ experience that incorporates animation, masks and participatory performance… Uncle Hans-Peter is the patriarch of the ‘Let Me Feel Your Finger First’ family. He’s a hunter. An operator. He enjoys tying up his nephews on hot summer afternoons. The Uncle Hans-Peter Party is a genuine hybrid event, a ‘live’ comic strip where the audience dons plastic masks and collectively assumes the persona of Uncle Hans-Peter. It’s an initiation into the comic world of ‘Let Me Feel Your Finger First’, a world suffused with suggestions of uncomfortable familial relations, Machiavellian manoeuvring, and tremendous drives that threaten to overwhelm the characters inhabiting this place… All guests receive a mask and a complimentary copy of Das Familienoberhaupt, the new LMFYFF comic. The Uncle Hans-Peter Party features Escapade (Uncle Hans-Peter’s Theme) written by Fil OK (Nag Nag Nag). Dress code: Smart casual, Lederhosen optional. More…
