I can find something shorter if necessary
Lecture Performance · Premiere
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2018
I don’t remember anymore, which artist retorted once that »artists don’t have to clean up the shit that politicians do«.
In 2009, Tanzfabrik asked Lina Majdalanie to present a lecture performance on the role of the performer in the future. Since a number of years, and today more than ever, this question seems to deeply concern the artistic milieu – with the 'slight' difference that the question is now posed in terms of the urgency of 'today' instead of the future, given the disturbing changes that are taking place on the political, economic, social, climatic, … in fact, on all levels. A number of panels, meetings and colloquia have been dedicated to this problem.
Afterwards talk with Silke Bake
By and with Lina Majdalanie | The Lecture Performance 2009 was realized with the kind support of the International Research College »Verflechtungen von Theaterkulturen«.
