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.

It’s also about ideas, and spaces, knowledge and resources. What does it mean to share? What structures enable sharing processes? Tom Knaffl, founder of the Verein teilbar e. V. in Stuttgart, invites committed and interested neighbors and experts to share their thoughts, to think about a specific project together, to encourage and advise each other.  The Schaudepot – A…or…NO…farewell tour
The Schaudepot – A…or…NO…farewell tour: Together with guests, Melanie Mohren and Bernhard Herbordt walk from the Theater Rampe to the Schaudepot. This is the place that – by the way – has also become an archive of the collaboration between Herbordt/Mohren and Theater Rampe over the past ten years.
‘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 ‘Blinding Virtual Reality?’ lab.

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.

The Festival – Online-Performance with Judica Albrecht and Armin Wieser
The Festival – Online-Performance with Judica Albrecht and Armin Wieser: ‘The Festival’ is based on a collection of impossible programme contributions: 
In the online performance, you will encounter Judica Albrecht and Armin Wieser as they speak out against the impossibilities of these programme contributions, against forgetting and being forgotten. The two report from remote regions, taste pieces of new music together and with you. Via Zoom and yet in the same room of the Schaudepot. The boundaries between the past and the present, live events and recording, document and fiction are blurred in an almost twisted game of deception.
The Black Circle by Emilija Tolj and Cennet Uyar The black circle symbolizes the characteristics and abilities of people with experiences of discrimination that are stripped out and cut out by the white majority society. The Festival by Herbordt/Mohren
