In the medieval satire Ship of Fools, a hundred madmen embark on a journey to the fictitious Narragonia. They will never arrive, but on their journey they have amusing adventures, engage cheerfully in foolishness and sing lustily. In reality, such boat trips were catastrophic for the mentally ill. In the Middle Ages, mentally ill and disabled people were taken from towns and sent out to sea to die.

In the medieval city of Ghent, the Berlin performance group Monster Truck and Platform K set out on an ambivalent journey to Narragonia, together with mentally disabled people. Along a route through the city, the audience takes a ride in a gondola through the streets and canals of Ghent, in search of a utopian experience. Get in, the next ride goes backwards. 

In the work of Monster Truck, science-fiction sets clash with past eras, the aesthetics of Hollywood blockbusters with nineteenth-century theatre, art conventions with physics and politics. The desire for spectacle and its critique always balance each other out. Monster Truck was founded in 2005 and works with a varying line-up of performers and visual artists. The core currently consists of Sahar Rahimi, Manuel Gerst and Marcel Bugiel. Monster Truck has won several prizes, toured internationally and played at renowned festivals.

Monster Truck is awarded the Tabori Prize 2019 for its "aesthetically highly demanding and at the same time cleaving works". The Tabori Prize is the highest award in Germany for the independent performing arts. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the Fund awarded the George Tabori Prize for the first time on 31 May 2010 to outstanding professional ensembles and artists.
