The city’s stages join forces with the Lendwirbel festival to call on local residents in the Lend district with their mobile project centre.
During the Lendwirbel 2020 festival, the theatres Next Liberty, Graz Opera House, and the Schauspielhaus will be leaving their stages to make house calls in the Lend area in a converted circus caravan.
• Next Liberty will be staging biographical theatre with interactive video installations. Among other things, family members from different generations will discuss Graz and thus feed the collective memory.
• In terms of theme, music and stage, the Opera House will focus on Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, with a flash mob breaking down cultural and social prejudices.
• The Schauspielhaus invites people to take an active look at the history of vacant buildings, how they are used and presented. Game theatre goes Lendwirbel.
With their different approaches, the three stages set out to show what theatre can accomplish in the digitised world: analogue encounters beyond the boundaries of generations, social brackets, cultures and genres.
