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.

‘Theater aus dem Schaudepot. Performance-Perlen archiviert’ by Dietrich Heissenbüttel, CONTEXT Wochenzeitung 614 of 4.1.23 (in German).
“The Schaudepot for the Performing Arts is a unique place where the audience can explore theatre in a very special way. Bernhard Herbordt and Melanie Mohren have archived their pieces there. And they are available for a guided tour or a program at any time. (Dietrich Heissenbüttel, CONTEXT Wochenzeitung 614 of 4.1.23 (in German)).
Die Gesellschaft (the Society) by Herbordt/Mohren, with the theatre collective ‘The Trailer’ (Karina Pino and Alessandra Santiesteban) and Ebru Nihan Celkan, 11.2.23, 4-6 p.m.
In the Schaudepot you can expect: an introduction ‘The Society’ as a performance and a new research society with Melanie Mohren and Bernhard Herbordt; an encounter with a society member; a video archive of all previous encounters; the opportunity to become a society member yourself, or to propose one. And a society game. You will only feel imagined rain on your palms or start a conversation with a prolonged silence.
