Here we are again! Exciting guest performances, fascinating talks and experimental formats are awaiting you. Because HEREANDNOW means always keeping your finger on the social and artistic pulse.
The world has changed dramatically in the last years. We are living in turbulent times, but we see this as an opportunity to take stock. Where do we stand in Europe, in Great Britain, in a world full of political upheaval? Where are we headed? What is at stake here? We present contemporary productions that focus on the first post-Brexit years without succumbing to the temptation of pure self-preoccupation.
Getting out of England to reflect on the state of the world on another small island in the big ocean – this is the motto of Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum with Expats by the English duo Sh!t Theatre. mandla takes the opposite direction. In as british as a watermelon, the queer performer, who is originally from Zimbabwe, examines mandla’s own (refugee) story and turns it into an act of self-healing and self-empowerment. Finally, Chris Thorpe takes a broader view of a looming threat that has, once again, become much more pressing in recent years. A Family Business is about nuclear weapons and their proliferation.
We invite you to join us, immerse yourself in stories, images, and viewpoints, have your say in discussions, and experience that festival feeling that comes from simply being there: here and now.
