The loneliness of city-dwellers contrasts with digital networking. This project probes this context with the devices of participation-based theatre.
The theatre production “THIS CITY’S LONELINESS / DIE EINSAMKEIT DIESER STADT” is a cooperation of Theater im Bahnhof and La Strada. It will take place concurrently in the form of an acoustic live stream with music and theory on the internet and a real street performance with three performers and ten minor players in Andritz main square.
The focus of the project is on the phenomenon of urban, human solitude that is becoming increasingly tangible and which forms a peculiar contrast to digital networking and constant availability. The theatre production will be preceded by research on the topics involved, enlisting the aid of experts from the world of architecture, science, social work, and workshops intended to provide the basic tools for working with body and voice. The ten performances will take place as part of La Strada.
