‘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. On the potential of virtual reality for blind and visually impaired persons by and with Steven Solbrig, Matthias Nagel and guests / 18.3.2023, 4:00-5:30 pm.

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.
