Open lecture Wednesday 5. December at 1800: "Rimini Protokoll" by Helgard Haug

In the traditional theatre the concept of space is tightly linked to the model of a container: The black box as a receptacle that is marked out by walls and can always be filled again anew. The stage, the peep box of a closed room, is screened from the outside world of urban space. The exterior stands for reality and the interior is contrasted to reality, the unreal, fictional, imaginary. But theatrical space can be thought of more expansively. It comprises audience as well as performers. The way the space is structured determines how stories can be told and viewed: Who is looking and who is performing? Helgard Haug, founding member of Rimini Protokoll, will focus on different theatrical settings in urban space and on different ways of how an audience can be placed in(to) this setting in their work.

In the large auditorium!
