OCTOBER 2017

 

EARLY OCT  REHEARSAL

GLOBAL BELLY (FLINN WORKS)

Is surrogate motherhood a blessing of modern medicine or a neocolonial act? Is delivering the child of a stranger work or charity? Global Belly portrays people entangled in the surrogacy business. This performance shifts between borderless desire, finely balanced intimacy, heated debate and the cool logic of the market.

>>Visit the rehearsals; you’ll get LC-Tickets for the performances from October 12 – 14.

 

OCT 13       ARTIST TALK

EMOCRACY (INTERROBANG)

Interrobang works in their new immersive piece with emotional/political processes in democratic systems. The group creates a theatrical micro society in which rage, wit and love count just as much as a good argument.

>>We offer LC-Tickets; artist talk after the performance. (In German)

 

OCT 19       REHEARSAL

BÖSE HÄUSER (TURBO PASCAL)

Turbo Pascal is thinking outside the box. Turbo Pascal is thinking radically. Turbo Pascal is reaching the limits of its own filtered bubble and together with the audience will enter other realms of thought and buildings of ideas. How do we break free from ideological world views?

>>Get an inside view to the rehearsal process. (In German)

 

OCT 20       ARTIST TALK

BLUTSBRÜDER (JOCHEN ROLLER)

Choreographer Jochen Roller tackles the phenomenon of the German Indian fetish hobby: Winnetou! Blutsbrüder rolls out the carpet for an entertaining evening in which ethnic drag cabaret, documentary, techno rave and puppet shadow theater deliver exotic dance rounds.

>>We offer LC-Tickets and an artist talk afterwards.
