Mitwirkende gesucht

Habt ihr Lust, bei der neuen Produktion von Rimini Protokoll mitzuwirken? Dann heißt es: ... bitte einsteigen! 

Wir suchen Mitwirkende aus Essen und Umgebung, genauer: ein Kind im Alter von 11 Jahren sowie ein/e Jugendliche/n im Alter von 16 Jahren, die aus Perspektive der Heranwachsenden unsere urbane Gesellschaft auf ihr Regelwerk untersuchen – im Zeitraum vom 18. Mai – 7. Juli.

Bei ›DO'S & DON'TS Essen‹ – eine Fahrt nach allen Regeln der Stadt wird in dem mobilen Zuschauerraum eines umgebauten LKWs mit großer Fensterfront die Stadt zur Bühne und der Truck zur Theatersonde, die sich auf die Stadt richtet wie ein Mikroskop.

Bewerbungen bitte an:

1/2/8 Research festival

In Spring 2017, PACT launched 1/2/8 a new, central and long-term research and development format with a special focus on the connection between knowledge and actions. The format offers substantial time and space for practices of cooperation between people, objects, space, technology and experimentation.



PACT’S yearly interactive symposium impact brings together artists, practitioners, theoreticians and advanced students in the fields of dance, theatre, performance, visual arts, new media, film, music and architecture for a three day exchange engaging critically with the artistic strategies and working methods of three exceptional guest artists.
