X thoughts about longing
A production of the Young DNT
Let's dream, tell each other about our places of longing. Where have you always wanted to go? How do you imagine the perfect place, "the place to be"? Have you ever been there? Do you still go there? Or should it always remain something unattainable? And what is the meaning of longing? Does it have anything to do with addiction? What does it take to be happy? And what comes out of us and what is given to us by advertising, projection and internet posturing? Can you still dream, desire, yearn without this being attributable to a consumer good that someone wants to sell? What was it like in the past? Where does the word SEHNSUCHT come from? Is it a typical German melancholic feeling? Does it have potential, power and activity or is it always projection, influenced by a foreign determination? Questions about questions and thoughts about longing. We want to explore and play them out with you. We are looking for stories, questions around this concept. We will design, tell, create moving images in the form of film, question the given and create a common narrative with the means of theater. The first practical workshops will take place during the winter vacations, followed by weekly rehearsals and a final rehearsal week during the Easter vacations. Finally, the work will be presented in the studio stage of the DNT.
The project is sponsored by "Zur Bühne", the support program of the German Stage Association within the framework of "Kultur macht stark. Alliances for Education".
