Theater der Zeit
Through Antje Boetius’ performance in Alexander Eisenach’s production, something quite unique emerges, Sascha Westphal writes in his review of “Anthropos, Oedipus (Tyrant)”: “Documentary theatre and tragedy converge, art and activism enter into a dialogue that even reminds one a little of Erwin Piscator’s theatre in the 1920s”.
What Theatre Can Do For Climate
Inspired by the “Theater des Anthropozän”, the Bremen Shakespeare Company is planning to develop a unique performance on the topic of climate change. This idea was discussed together with Frank M. Raddatz as part of the “Netzgespräche” series.
