Cherry On The Top

The performance collective Cherry On The Top celebrated excessive punk attitude. While being a voice for the ugly, the wrong, the outcast, it was an attack on the positivisms of the neoliberal discourse. The performances were seen as rituals which next to the use of theatrical elements, often included the preparation and serving of food. The collective was active between 2012 and 2015. In 2020 there was an attempt for a reunion.

Group members would change and combine differently for every performance. Members were: Lea Hofer, Tobias Schicker, Shafique Ismail Weber, Ilikay Karayazi, Reto Hausmann, Oubaida Ben Mabrouk, Corinne Sutter, Roger Fähndrich, Michèle Aebi, Barbara, Bene, Blues Tinu, Tanja Schwarz
