The Game by Viviana González Méndez
The Game by Viviana González Méndez: This game comes from learning about how traditions, coming from rural and suburban context of popular Andean world, understand and create relationships with their surroundings. Distilled from these traditions is, especially, the idea that space is understood as a community of beings that are interwoven and in constant dialogue with each other. By this logic, there is no hierarchical difference between the human and other beings. But if we accept that places can be beings, then we should also include them as part of this community. And what surrounds us are not simply objects but living entities with which we could establish relations of reciprocity.

The Schaudepot – A…or…NO…farewell tour

‘Stadtraum-Theater in der alten Fliesenlegerwerkstatt.’ by Elisabeth Maier, Theater der Zeit, 4/2023. Since 2021, Herbordt and Mohren, the two pioneers of the performing arts, have been operating their Schaudepot in the former workshop of an Altenbergweg tiler, in the midst of many rental apartments down in Stuttgart Kessel. Regarding the concept, Herbordt remarks:⁠ “Our basic idea is to bring theatre into the residential area.” During lunch break or after work, people stop by and watch videos of the productions that the Herbordt/Mohren collective has been creating since 2012. For their socio-political performative projects, the two were awarded the "Der Faust" German Theatre Prize in the genre-busting category in 2022. This “great encouragement” has only emboldened them to do more. The Schaudepot – Spezial V – Die Gesellschaft (The Society), Kodak et al., 18.3.2023, 2-8 p.m.

Kodak von Jorge Alencar and Neto Machado
Kodak von Jorge Alencar and Neto Machado: ,Kodak‘ is a performance for kids in which 100 colorful archive boxes build a world of giant legos or a Mindcraft universe, in continuous construction. They turn into buildings, labyrinths, theater sets and whatever else is needed. From within them, more and more surprises emerge that multiply the possibilities of thought, perception and movement.
