Aufbruchsgeister - Departing minds (Theatre at DADAA)

25 November 2021
A poetic drama written by Existence Theatre about a desperate search for allies in uncertain times.

The 'DEPARTING MINDS' have one goal, not to feel foreign in their own skin, once they gather around others in this rather small environment.

And suddenly they sit with these people in the same 'boat'.

The performance responds to habituated and embodied expressions that need to be challenged so that adaptation to chaotic, uncertain situations can happen in more flexible ways. Unforeseen situations trigger emotional eruptions.

This show makes you face close-up vulnerability and raises awareness of the effects that micro-racism and stereotypical stigmatisation have on someone, who won't turn a blind eye any longer. Surreal, confronting and immersive.

Presented by: ART IN PROCESS and Existence Theatre
