play nice -negotiating foot jugglingTwo people – obviously different, obviously similar –
meet in a special situation: on stage. Without speaking,
they talk. They play complex games with simple
rules. Games that require listening, games that require
respect. Games that can be manipulated. Rules
that can be broken. The audience is their chorus, a
chorus that watches, emphasizes the actions, takes
sides – constantly part of the reality happening on stage.
The piece shows abstract moments depicting everyday life, alternately
funny and absurd, which also call on fantasy and an
animal imagery.
In the intimacy of their relation, a common body language made
of games takes shape. It questions the weight of a relation, staging
its lightness, its spontaneity, its fragilities and its madness.
Situations of conflict, fusion, interaction and collaboration develop
in an organic way with uncertain outcomes.
The games unfolding on stage and with the audience reflect on
status and social manipulation. The resulting pictures and situations
tell metaphors and stories of respect, empathy, ignorance
and solidarity.

RE/ACT!
“Theater is a form of knowledge; it should and can therefore be a means of transforming society. Theater can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.” Augusto Boal

RE/ACT! ist ein Stück, das gesellschaftlich relevante Themen wie Zivilcourage und Verantwortungsbewusstsein in einen Performancekontext holt und dort gemeinsam mit dem Publikum erlebbar macht.
Der*die Performer*in, die ihre Wurzeln im zeitgenössischen Zirkus, Tanz und in der Performancekunst haben, arbeiten mit Werkzeugen aus ebendiesen Sparten. Sie spielen. Sie spielen mit fallen und aufgefangen werden, mit Blindheit, gehen Risiko ein und schenken Vertrauen. Wer übernimmt am Schluss Verantwortung?
