Dust is everywhere. In the cracks of your computer keyboard, on the leaves of your yucca palm, in the fabric of your fanciest dress. No matter how and how often we clean up dust, it always comes back. As a companion of all living things, it reminds us of the future: death. Or better: the continuation of life in another form. A vision in which the rest of my body is united with the rest of a table edge and a sock. Under the microscope, we can see the diversity of dust particles floating through the air like stars through space, until they finally sink down on surfaces, almost weightless knitted fabrics, woolly mice, mutzes. Later we find inside the vacuum cleaner bag: the dirty, grey and small archive of our everyday life. Who and what does it consist of? Do great feelings also become dust in the end? How can the decay be traced back? Who is responsible for it? Yes, exactly, who actually cleans this theatre and what does it all have to do with the operetta?
In electromagnetic operetta costumes, äöü presents a piece of theatre development in the large vacuum cleaner bag made by " Black Box" about the very big questions of form and content, life and death, paid work and gender, magic and engineering, theatre and performance theatre.

Birds: They dance, fight and dream of Baroque songs. "Bookpink" - in low German chaffinch - written by Caren Jeß is consisting of several mini scenes around bidrs. The dirty peacock (he/him) writes his memories, the white pigeon (she/her) feels imprisoned on the camping area and the marsh tit (he/him) questions the male gender. 13 birds who actually are natural free creatures are caught by different circumstances, e.g. gender norms, the supposed wrong birth place or a glass case. On the BOX-stage the attempt of a re-start hatches out.

Language of the play is German.

Boys* in Sync - Happy Vineyards

In Happy Vineyards, four friends from Denmark, Poland, Norway and Germany reflect on the most German theatre play ever. „Der Fröhliche Weinberg“, written by famous theatre author Carl Zuckmayer and published in the same year as Hitler’s Mein Kampf, is set in 1921, a time of political instability and the rise of far right movements. 100 years later, the artists take the play as a starting point to rage about the current political situation and todays theatre.

With: Jakob Schnack Krog, Simon David Zeller, Ragni Halle and Gregers Kroksleiven-Hansen. Outside Eyes: Naja Schønemann und Jay Tebogo Fiskerstrand.

Condition Report

Formal gestures, calculated routines, dialects, a certain way of speaking—personalities are in many ways a form of semantics. The character Roberta Breitmore demonstrates this very clearly: originally developed by artist Lynn Hershman Leeson and embodied over a ten-year period, she is an invented character, but by no means fictional. As the title suggests, “Condition Report” is an inventory and condition report of this myth, from Roberta Breitmore’s introduction in 1973 to her death in 1978. The work does not approach her psychologically, but rather understands Roberta Breitmore as a score: material data, such as her reception, aesthetic and haptic impressions, (artistic) intentions, and material semantics, are processed into a script. Strictly speaking, all manufactured materials tend to self-destruct sooner or later. They strive to reach the state of lowest energy. “Condition Report” updates Roberta Breitmore and formally adopts her vocabulary of movement. “Condition Report” can thus also be read as a reflection of contemporary approaches towards identity (or identities), alter egos, poses, and images of the self and others.

cuteness won't save you

We used to listen to this song when it was still dark outside:

And I work and I work all day and night
I wonder if I’m ever gonna get it right
I push and I push to get ahead
I know I gotta make my daily bread
I know I don’t have time to lose
I wonder if I really have time to choose
I barely have time to shed a tear
I hardly have time to shake the fear

And the body says: Remember you gotta breath! […] Take your time to grieve!
The mind says: Let the silence flow! […] Allow yourself to grow!
The spirit says: Cast your eyes above! […] Fill your heart with love!
The heart says: Seek the light within! […] Let the dance begin!
And my mother says to me: Enjoy your life!

– Beverly Glenn-Copeland

Welcome to the capitalist ruins, dear tourists! 
Bring some sun protection, cause we will sweat in the middle of the arena of a former socialist luxury hotel. Haludovo Palace Hotel and the dance floor have been waiting for you and us all. Let's come together next to the blue blue sea to listen to our glory holes accompanied by a feminist music album: 700WET risks juicy sounds to seduce our missing libido in pandemic and capitalist ruins. 
Let's stay with the ruins, be wet and weary, silly and horny, angry and depressed. Now and then. 
Yours truly, 
the self-organized stage creatures

DAS ERGEBNIS! Die Wahl der Nicht_Wahlberechtigten

The results are announced! 
On the 10th of July 2021 the election of the non_eligibles to vote took place right in the center of the market place in Giessen. Regardless of gender, race, language, income or property, profession, status or class, education, confession or political conviction, all people who are usually NOT allowed to vote in Germany, could vote AGAINST one party with their electoral participation. 
Be curious about the results of the election and the speeches of our guests!

Das Freilichtspielhaus präsentiert: DER WAGEN Ein Theater-Roadmovie durch Deutschland

The FREILICHTSPIELHAUS is coming! The mobile cinema bus, a vintage fire truck with a screen on the roof and its own cinema store, brings great cinema to every village, and the villages to the big screen. 

It will be shown: THE WAGON. A theater road movie through Germany. 
In the summer of 2019, a theater troupe begins an unusual tour of Germany: it travels on 100-year-old hay wagons once across the Republic - from the Rhine-Hessian village of Dautenheim to Berlin. Every evening the troupe plays THE GREAT THEATRE OF THE WOLD by Calderón in a different village, every day they move 40 km further. 
DER WAGEN is a document of this utopian journey of wandering theater: a film about the power of the stage, which offers an unusual view of Germany, from the countryside to the city, from West to East, through the centuries. 

After the film, there will be time at the cinema store to talk about art, local structures, early modern times, and Germany today in a home setting. The FREILICHTSPIELHAUS brings together artists and local actors, and who knows, maybe the allegorical figures from Calderón's play - the rich, the poor, the beauty, the farmer - will meet again here.

Dating a Forest

If Parship, Grindr und LoveScout24 are currently not enough for you: come and join "Dating a Forest". Nur du und der Wald. Im Juni in Offenbach am Main.

A site-specific AudioDate for one spectator and forest.

The forest is many things in Germany: a nostalgic place and a counter-narrative to urban life, a financial resource, a patriotically charged symbol, a place for leisure and recreation, an essential ecosystem. What would it be like to have a date with this forest? Just you and the forest, in the middle of the city. Maybe it will be romantic, maybe you’ll just have a good time, maybe you’ll realise that it’s not really a good fit after all. In “Dating a Forest”, performanceduo PINSKER+BERNHARDT invites you to make new connections with the forest and to merge with each other. And – as in any good encounter – to dispel misconceptions. How can you meet the forest in such a way that you take it seriously as a partner? Whether the date ultimately turns into something more is up to you.

Konzept und Umsetzung: PINSKER+BERNHARDT (Janna Pinsker und Wicki Bernhardt)

Over the period of a year, we have pursued a weekly online practice to reinterpret digital conference settings, as spaces of freedom of imagination. A game of hiding behind sight, to retrieve unexpected perspectives that can bring us closer together, by moving us apart in space. Participants from various professional and personal backgrounds were invited to experience the practice with us.
Drawing each-other, allowed us to share soundscapes, temperatures and memories, regardless of appearance or skill.

With the collected drawings we will now build an actually walkable platform.
Offering space for reflection, outlook and present encounters;
a gathering with the (virtual) presences of all those who contributed to this shared space.

We invite you to carefully set foot on the many faces and listen to where their gazes take you to.

a game of hiding behind sight, to retrieve unexpected perspectives that can bring us closer together, by moving us apart in space. 
we care to reflect notions of public: how sustainable are encounters between participants of a performance? As public spaces became inaccessible, we began investigating digital conference settings for their possible reinterpretation as spaces of freedom of imagination. How can they be inhabited in a way to offer communion? 
We found that drawing each-other, allows us to share soundscapes, temperatures and memories, regardless of appearance or skill. 
After a year of weekly encounters, we now invite people to take part in a session of this online practice with us. I reassure that it is not our intention to expose anyone, or create any compromising situations. 
We invite you to experiment, take this time and in the most candid sense: enjoy the company. 
Each session takes about 60 min. and will happen on Zoom
