Performing Politics of Care

A joint project by Ringlokschuppen Ruhr and EGfKA – funded by the Doppelpass Fund

The Ringlokschuppen Ruhr in Mülheim and the European Community for Cultural Affairs (EgfKA) conjure the spirits of the Russian October Revolution, the May ´68 movement and the antifascist playwright Jura Soyfer (†1937) and assess their value for the present and future.

This project applies the model of “anastrophe” to our capitalistic, seemingly unalterable, crisis-ridden reality. In the face of austerity, precariatisation, right-wing extremism, renationalisation and climate change, it is sometimes impossible to envision the future of society, but in the “Laboratories of Social Imagination”, this future is developed, tested and (pre-)enacted on stage. End of times, baby? We’re just getting started!

Starting in February 2017, the project plans to stage two theatre laboratories and corresponding performances, along with festivals and an event series.
