End of February our interactive research installation – the Europhone – has started its journey through Europe in order to collect opinions about the future of Europe. The recorded material will serve us as a basis for our new project Preenacting Europe.
Current Europhone locations:
Hellerau – European Center for the Arts Dresden: 8. – 28. April 2014 (location: Gerberbau of the Technischen Universität Dresden, Bergstraße 53, Department of Political Science)
Archa Theatre Prag / Goethe-Institut Prag: 29. April – 2. May 2014
PREMIERE 23rd of May 2014, Sophiensaele Berlin
further performances: 24th, 27th and 28th of May 2014
For the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons we are testing a new performance format: the Preenactment. Different to the backward-looking idea of reenactment, the Preenactment explores exemplary present-day phenomena and, using performance and theatrical means, transposes them into the future. Current political and social tendencies, that effect our daily life are thus amplified, exaggerated and together with the public acted out and tested in a communicative set-up – the future as experience. The Preenactment series is part of our Doppelpass-partnership together with Sophiensaele Berlin.
