About his Work

Marcus’ performances feel and look like keynotes. They have been specifically created for festival and conferences stages which is why Marcus calls them performance hacks. The content: the visuals, the framing, the sound, the text and Marcus’ performance hacks the conference format and has a greater impact on the audience. They confront, polarise and excite.

A Wicked Pack Of Cards (Premieres in Berlin 2020)
A performance based upon T.S. Eliot’s epic poem The Wasteland. It features film, live performance, deep fakery, music and a wicked deck of cards. It is an exercise in urgency. The performance is a ritual, a modern-day liturgy for the techno-heathens. It is based on this poem.
