Roadtrip Ukraine

What do we actually know about the Ukraine? Besides maybe football, Tschernobyl or the Eurovision Song Contest?  Very little, we´re afraid. But the Ukraine is of great geopolitical and cultural importance to Europe, despite being a white spot on our cognitive map. However, what keeps Europe together or what drives it apart can be understood better from it´s fringe.

So in September 2019 the whole lot of us together will travel through Ukraine and have a closer look at things. On this road-trip which will lead us from the polish-ukrainian border  in the west to the ukrainian-russian border far in the east we will research the conditions of life, the dreams, hopes and strategies of survival of the younger generation 5 years after Euromaidan for you. More information soon…

pop-up-theatre pro Europe

On May 26th there will be the elections for the European Parliament. Despite its significance, voter participation is traditionally low for these elections. Public-opinion polls indicate that right-wing parties throughout Europe will have an increase in seats in the Parliament, thus making its work even more difficult.

We are planning a pop-up-theatre campaign in public space to remind people to go voting – and to help to prevent the nationalists in the European Parliament.

F(EU)TURE FESTIVAL

On 15.3. 2019 at 12.30 pm we participated in the „F(EU)TURE FESTIVAL“, organised by the European Democracy Lab together with the CLB Berlin. As an reenactment of the European Balcony Project in November 2018 we read once again and this time in many languages the Manifesto for the European Republic by Ulrike Guérot und Robert Menasse. The event was part of the exhibition „The European Republic is under Construction“, which presented ideas for a European Republic.

Hotel Hamlet

Nach William Shakespeare

Something‘s rotten in the state of…Denmark? Or was it Europe? We dare to look from a somewhat run-down hotel business to a larger context. Welcome to Hotel Hamlet! The famous play about treason, guilt and revenge by William Shakespeare, set into scene in a suprisingly modern way. A narration about overcoming doubts and taking action against injustice in times of disquietude.

opening: 6. 12. 2018     performances : 7./8./20./21.12.2018/12.1.2019       7 pm

European Balcony Project

Imagineering a better Europe: On 10th of November 2018, from balconies in theatres and other public spaces all over Europe, artists and citizens performatively procaimed the European Republic and read a short manifesto, written by Ulrike Guérot, Robert Menasse and Milo Rau. The aim of the project is to create awareness of the fact that the future of European citizens is in the hands of the citizens themselves, to encourage them to take responsibility for the European project and to unterpin the European idea of  „Unity in Diversity“ – without national borders and inequality among its citizens. Thank you for joining us at the Friedrichsbrücke on Museumsinsel in Berlin Mitte for an exciting theatrical flashmob.

Europa. Immer noch. Wir schreiben das Jahr 2037.

Europa befindet sich in der Hand einer geheimnisvollen Macht. Die Angst hält die Bürger Europas gefangen.
Drinnen  – herrscht Ruhe. Die Menschen sind in Sicherheit.
Fünf junge Glückssucher wollen sich nicht länger in ihrem Unbehagen einrichten. Mit unterschiedlichen Ideen im Gepäck ziehen sie los, um herauszufinden, was zu tun ist. 

Regie: Christine Dissmann

Choreografie: Kathinka Sonneborn

Musik: Paul Lesch
