Society is turning itself into an idiot. However, the Clinical Dictionary of the troup behind this piece defines "idiocy" less as limited intellectual capacity and more as fundamental ignorance of people with physical or mental disabilities.

The starting point for this piece is the medieval allegory collection "The Ship of Fools" by Sebastian Brandt. However, while the literary original tells of the follies of mankind, all roles of fools have been deleted for this interpretation. Even the ship is nowhere to be found. The core of the work is formed by themes that are central for people with disabilities: sexual self-determination, independence and perception by others.

Reduced to a bizarre banquet within the walls of Gravensteen Castle, Monster Truck in cooperation with Platform-K, generates an irritating reinterpretation full of ambivalent drasticness, black humor and style-conscious cross-references to the Love Parade.
