„Men“ eat steaks. They drink beer. They burp. They don’t use napkins. They are ravenously hungry.  They have higher energy consumption.  „Women“ however. „Women“ eat mixed salad and muesli for breakfast. They only want a small piece of the cake. They do low-carb. They know, what’s healthy. They are not hungry. They  are starvin themselves. „Women“ cook, „men“ eat. It shows:  Lots of Sexism and Fatfobia in our Schnitzel!
Henrike Iglesias says: WTF?! Everybody is hungry and everybody should be able to gorge oneself! But how do we get there? In their cooking show the performers dish up society's obsession with food, devouring everything that gets in their way.

For this play, we give you the following content warnings:

- Bodyshaming, eating disorder/compulsions will be addressed.

-There will be use of loud music, strobe effects and moving light spotlights in places.

-There is darkness in individual scenes.
