Project Description

( The 1st Potsdam Balcony Ballet )

ORIGINAL: Das 1. Potsdamer Balkonballett

‘Platte’ (colloquial expression for houses in former GDR built up in prefabricated construction method), original condition, shortly before the renovation. In this space in between we stage the piece which is created in two weeks of research on site.

Experiences and impressions of the district and the empty apartments, conversations with the people from Potsdam-Drewitz and the work with those involved in the project shape the play which tells site-specific stories of living and existing.

In the end there is the show. Together we do the work on the way there, create the atmosphere, give impulses. (Look up devised theatre.) To lead everything to a coherent whole, which follows a superordinate idea, a concept, a question – that is my job as a director.
