Thinking Theater Differently – Artist Talk

7:00pm – 9:00pm
Free

In the series “Theater anders denken“ (Thinking theater differently) the Goethe-Institut presents exceptional approaches of contemporary theater productions. This time the Goethe-Institut welcomes two guests representing very different trends in the current theater scene in Germany.

The Syrian playwright Mohammad Al-Attar, whose performances take place on the boundary between fiction and documentation. He condenses the travails of war in Syria and shows, what it means to endure them.

The director Susanne Kennedy, who responds to the new balance of power between bodies, technical objects and machines with an aesthetic that is beyond the human. Distorted by masks, playback dialogue, doppelgängers and multimedia, the actors confront the audience with a post-humanistic subjectivity.

While the event is free to attend, registration is requested.
The event will be held in English with Japanese translation.
