Das Landschaftstheater der neuen Gefährt:innen

(OTHERWARDS  The landscape theatre of the new compagnons)


At the end of the fossil age, recherchepraxis is developing a landscape theatre in which man decentralises and his ensemble expands to include erratics, hawkweed, worms, bacteria, Sorbian and other spirits. The landscapes of the Lusatian coalfield and the conditions of climate change are the testing ground for the new compagnons. Experts from a wide range of disciplines will be part of a process in which we will search for the utopian impulses of the dramatic landscapes, test communications and constellations and discover sustainable resources of both the landscapes and the theatre.
