Details of the programme follow
Participate in a recurring dialogue in several episodes on the sharing of knowledge and resources with cultural workers and audience members!
In order to explore the economies and principles of sustainability and sharing from an artistic point of view, Antje Pfundtner will organise a multi-day table society with HELLERAU-European Centre for the Arts in Gesellschaft from 22.01.2021, focusing on re-performance and opening the dialogue between national artists, sociologists, philosophers, archivists and spectators.
In the spirit of repetition as a gesture of transmission, the Tischgesellschaft: „Wieder da!“ is planning an online programme in several episodes, consisting of processes of re-enactment, audience conversations, lectures and panel discussions knitted around four questions: What reusable resources does a play hold? What does re-performance have to do with sustainability? What is the function of waste in art? What produces repetition?
Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft opens the discourse of re-performance with her own re-performance process of her play “Vertanzt”, premiered in Hamburg in 2011. Due to the lockdown caused by the pandemic, no revival will take place in front of an audience. Antje Pfundtner will share her work process of re-appropriation, which lasted several weeks, and the reflections on it in company in a film documentary, which HELLERAU – European Centre for the Arts will broadcast on 22.1.2021. As part of this documentary, the table societies involved in the upcoming episodes will be present online and will join you and you viewers for the digital evening with previews and subsequent discussions.
