Return to Reims

Didier Eribon's book of the same name was published in German in 2016 and quickly became a bestseller. The resulting debate about the socially "dependent", who are overflowing to the right-wing camp, continues to be lively. In the theatre version by director Thomas Jonigk we bring Eribon's hybrid narrative between sociological study, emotional-biographical narrative of a boy growing up in a homophobic environment and pure poetry to the stage of Schauspiels Köln.

The sound within the orchestra

The sound impression for the musician in the orchestra is clearly different from the sound impression of the audience. Not only the instruments, but the entire body of sound is designed to resonate with the concert hall and enter into a symbiotic connection with the room. As a listener in the hall, one hears the result of this complex connection. Is it possible to let a listener hear the sound of the musician within the orchestra through media?

Music theatre and Digitality

About Life in Demmin

Martin Farkas shows a city left alone with its history. His film tells a completely uneducated and open story of fear, peer pressure and historical trauma, xenophobia, false mourning and the political abuse of emotions. And it shows how strongly the present is connected with the past.

MAYA – Mixed-Reality-Techno-Opera

As the worlds first Augmented Reality opera, MAYA staged the former heating plant Munich-Aubing as a historic site. Through the AR-app on the own smartphone, the spectator betook himself in the perspective of a new civilization in the distant future, and looked back in amazement on the demise of our current civilization in the near future.

MAYA – Augmented Reality App

The standard theatre situation was reconfigured to an installation- and rave-like situation by means of the MAYA augmented reality App. Alive and present as an actor was only the mezzo-soprano Martina Koppelstetter. The digital world from which she originated was only visible through smartphones and AR. Experiencing this world through own smartphones, the audience strolled through the ruins and became the counterpart for MAYA with its presence, augmenting MAYA’s loneliness: MAYA had to sing against a mass of audience members gaping through their smartphones.
