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.

- Final piece
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Warm invitation to the opening of the video installation »le grand stade de l'objet a« by Jean-Noël Lenhard
The connection between image, gaze and identity in the field of psychoanalysis has rarely been explored as constantly as by Jacques Lacan. Like an overall pattern in his theories, he repeatedly shows interactions between identification, veritable mirrors, symbolic mirrors and gazing objects as well as subjects.
The video installation »le grand stade de l'objet a« invites visitors to experience Lacan's theory of the gaze in a playful way: “So you want to see. Well then, see this!”
The installation is apropriate and accessible for all audiences.
Thanks to everyone who supported me!

Mulan is a well-known female image in Chinese literature. In the earliest written record, „The Mulan Ballad“ (around 386–535 AD), Mulan crossdresses as a man as a stand-in for her old father to go to the battle.
At the beginning of 20th Century, some Chinese women were encouraged by Mulan’s story and engaged themselves in self-liberation. Through activism and revolution, those women re-wrote Mulan’s story : “Mulan” no longer fights for her father, but for women’s rights and equal social status. There is not only one legendary Mulan, but many Mulans.
On the other hand, the concept “Mulan Dilemma” describes the situation : Women have to disguise themselves as men to realize their value but are still judged by male-universal standards.
The solo performance “Mulans” is based on the research of feminism history in China and the performer Yinfu Gao’s self-exploration of the body movements, which opens a dialog between Mulans and herself : How do I emancipate myself as a woman?

It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.

What if we think of a performance as an anthology? A florilegium.
What if we opened up our backpacks and looked at what we found there as one big collection?
What if we went on an expedition and all we did was listen while we waited for something to happen? For something to appear.
What if we told you a story but weren’t sure which one to tell?
In the performance ‘on holes’ three performers and one musician, Amélie, Herbert, Merthe and Sara are temporarily getting lost in the mists of time, they let themselves sink deep down into a hole in the middle of the earth where they encounter different creatures, sounds and long forgotten parts of themselves.
All the while they are remembering that darkness is nothing but a product of our own retina, created by our eyes turning to themselves.
On the one hand ‘on holes’ contemplates about the notion of the hole as a possibility for fiction(s) to emerge and on the other hand it tries to find ways of how to position our human bodies within a story or rather in relation to what and who we meet down there in the hole.
This project is a cooperation of Amélie Haller with Theater neben dem Turm and the MA Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft within the frame of Hessian Theatre Academy (HTA).

Every beat a syllable, every syllable a beat. With this method, “piece for drumset and powerpoint“ writes an essay. Using a strangely silent version of karaoke, the text explores the limits of language and understanding – and what might come after. What starts as a text slowly turns into a concert. The stiffness of the powerpoint presentation stand in opposition to the seemingly loose improvisation of the drums. The audience is positioned between those two elements and has to decide which side tells a more credible story. Max Smirzitz constructs a performative arrangement that investigates the intersections of language, rhythm, timing and time.

In this performance, the coming together of people is simulated as an emergency. So we meet to examine our coming together itself.We take apart gestures and positions to reoccupy our memories of a resuscitation training. Between tension and relaxation, unconsciousness and expansion of consciousness, we sound out how we relate to each other and how we might relate to each other differently. A familiar situation becomes a measure with artistic means.
Can we train coming together as a new sport?
"Deepfake Situations" are misappropriations of everyday situations, with the goal of asking about the foundations of how we come together. In contrast to the illusions created by AI, "Deepfake Situations" are about the advancement of human abilities to construct new situations. The "Deepfakes" produced therefore use methods of readymade, intervention, and learning play, among others. "Deepfake Situations" was created at the Institute for Applied Theater Studies, showed various projects in Frankfurt (Main), Mannheim, Bochum, Berlin, Stockholm and Skopje, among others, and consists of Felix Falczyk and Johanna Herschel.
The performance "Resuscitation Training" as part of the ARENA-Festival is supported by the Giessener Hochschulgesellschaft.

Rear Windows explores the relationship between theatre, liveness, and cinema. It is an experiment in radical cinema that renegotiates the possibilities of interacting with the cinema screen. In the spirit of artist, curator, and writer Ian White (1971–2013) as well as Siegfried Kracauer's partly ethnographic method of critique, which he elaborated in particular in The Salaried Masses (1930), Rear Windows poses the question, how what we see is shaped by what we see it with. What follows is an essayistic reflection on cinema and performance, both as physical environments as well as art forms.

Scores and Found Movements: in the archives of Yvonne Rainer, Lucinda Childs, Trisha Brown and Deborah Hay
In this workshop framework, a score is a blueprint for opening creative pathways of thinking and doing - in terms of dancing. An introduction will be given about the score itself and some artists that work with it: as a framework, a structure, a set of tools, a set of rules, as a script for a performance presentation, as well as an inspiration. We will work both practically and theoretically, conceptualizing scores from specific choreographers as well as activating and embodying them.
Therefore, my approach to scores applies an ongoing research methodology within the notion of the body-archive as the body of dance history - its relation to the tradition of dance based on operations with the appropriation of found movements (Rainer, 1966), one of the central concepts of the American postmodern dance movement (1960-70), taking my re-enactments of four minimalist choreographies as found choreographies: Trio A (Yvonne Rainer, 1966), Locus (Trisha Brown, 1975) Calico Mingling (Lucinda Childs, 1973), and No Time to Fly (Deborah Hay, 2010).
To re-enact those choreographies, I have been applying the post-annotation or video-annotation from Motion Bank Annotation System. The late is the development of the Motion Bank former project that has its roots in two William Forsythe’s projects: Synchronous Object for One Flat Thing, reproduced (2000) and Improvisational Technologies (2012), both working with the Forsythe Company to translate through digital data the choreographic knowledge, and repurpose this information visually and qualitatively.

The ATW students are welcome to participate in the workshop.
The Theatermaschine is an annual showcase of the works of the students studying Applied Theatre Studies and Choreography and Performance at the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen.
Additionally to a variety of artistic pieces, the Theatermaschine is also known for its festival character. This year's motto is: WTF is ATW?
Together with you, we would like to explore that question and show you what we are working on right now and what characterizes our institute.
The Showings consist of various performances, films and videoart, music and dance showings, readings as well as installations.
We hope that this festival manages to create a space for new encounters and that we will experience 5 unforgettable days!
You can look forward to an extensive and versatile program, many showings and parties, concerts and activities at the festival centre.
When? June 16 - 20
Where? Stages of the institute

Two performers, a writer, and a musician improvise onstage in the abyss that separates words and things, looking for ways to queer language and emancipate bodies from the names and concepts that were given to them. They engage in an ongoing process of building practices to question an anthropocentric approach to language. Theirs is a performance of deconstruction, an exercise in seeing language not as a way to appropriate things (I name, it’s mine) or to prove some human superiority, but as an eternal dialog between ungraspable beings. Within this dialog, worlds/words can be created.

In Frankfurt, seven people (a choreographer, a dramaturg, and five performers) come together to mine our expertise in being radically ourselves. As trans and nonbinary folks, we wake up everyday ready to thwart reality, choosing to shape our bodies and identities through self-determined improvisation—even in the face of systems that threaten to pathologize or erase us. Ours is a double negation: of the systems that structure life, and the need to inhabit them.
In the rehearsal studio, we develop physical practices out of our unique daily routines. We write, talk, move, sing. One of us bathes in her dance of trying on dresses; another giddily wrestles with his own biceps. We choreograph our own existence, deciding how, where, and when we want to be witnessed. We invite you to do the same

I say to her, ‘Would you like to be a wolf?’ She answers haughtily, ‘How stupid, you can’t be one wolf, you’re always eight or nine, six or seven.’

For Kim, Patti and Ellie. You are my heroines.
Hey Joe. You Hungry baby. But Don‘t call me mad. There‘s a difference, I’m angry.
Tales, thoughts and promises on music I collected when growing up in between rock music. But what if I feel this music was never meant for me?
