The Theatre by Herbordt/Mohren

What if a whole village were staged as a performance? From October 2015 to October 2018, Herbordt/Mohren invited people to performative country parties in Michelbach an der Lücke every second Sunday.

‘Das Theater’ takes the audience on a tour of theatre installations. Empty rooms around the central village square are used as archives, guest houses, cinemas, museums and theatres. The audience is invited on an excursion between stage and everyday life, between citizens’ initiative and art. Originally constructed in, with and for Michelbach an der Lücke, ‘Das Theater’ can now also be experienced at the Schaudepot.

Available immediately.

The performance has an integrated audio description. For more information, please contact info@die-institution.org or call +49 (0)711 - 88892770.
