Online Theater: The BIG Picture – Feb. 24 and 25, 2021, 10 a.m.
A picture is worth a thousand words. A picture can change the world. A picture can change you, it can challenge you – to think and to act. Come, let’s be inspired! Together, now and here. Two performers on stage play, document and explore the story behind the picture. They tell us stories of known and unknown people. Stories of little heroes and world-famous icons. Of people who turn their visions into actions and take responsibility. Who take action, break the rules, question traditions and reshape the future. Because the world can be changed.

Documentary Theater: Home away from home – Feb. 28, 2021, 8 p.m.
Taiwanese choreographer Fang Yun Lo, who works in Essen and Dresden, and her team met over 100 people of Vietnamese descent in Germany and Taiwan during two years of journalistic research. In spontaneous encounters at the workplace, in stores, snack bars and stores, they talked about experiences as immigrants and life in a family between cultures. Home away from home weaves a touching, polyphonic journey from all these memories. Divided into small groups, the audience meets six performers at different stations in the theater who tell their own stories and those of their families – as artists, workers, youtubers or students. A complex mosaic of human relationships emerges from narratives, images, films and audio pieces. Home Away From Home tells of the global dimension of labor migration and transcultural reality, reports on disruption and structural violence, but at the same time also explores overarching human categories of home, identity and happiness.
