A cocktail’s made of three ingredients. An eject evening consists of a minimum of 20. As decorative touch and democratic tool we throw in a load of balloons and clap banner clutter. Then, compression stockings hitched up elegantly over our thighs, we hurtle towards the hieroglyphs of madness in a mix that would make any YouTube playlist look like molding fruit languishing in the cold light of the setting winter sun. Eject is no mere program, Eject is everything you no longer dare to imagine. A visual grain-alcohol-filled candy, sugary sweet retinal caramel, glazed cinema pastry. A seated carnival at the Volksbühne. And just because we can, we pay 100 East Marks to all spectators - a kind of welcome money backwards. Bling, bling!
