Marc-Uwe lives in a flat-share – with a Kangaroo. This particular Kangaroo speaks, yes it does. And it is a communist, loves Nirvana and is addicted to chocolates filled with alcohol. Sounds like a completely normal flat-share, you might think.
The Kangaroo Chronicles reflect on this odd duo and their adventures, portray their dynamic dialogues and raise profound questions such as: Does lying in a hammock doing absolutely nothing count as resistance worthy of a revolution? Or how much of Hegel’s complete work can you get into a single text message? And, what is a Kangaroo to do with its pouch at airport security?
Hilarious and dead-sharp – a comedy, so funny, you would never expect it to come out of Germany!
