Schlingensief´s theatre


"Losing control mechanisms while at the same being conscious of the process's staged character, finding yourself in a state of liquidity - this is what my theatre revolves around" says Schlingensief of his theatre work. "I want to convince life that it is for the most part staged, and theatre that it is absolutely dependent on life." Whether (art) performance or theatre - Schlingensief's productions see actor merging with theatregoer as the stage and the galleries assume liquid boundaries. Hold-ups, hitches, breaks or disturbances provide a continually recurring series of dramatic ruptures that throw up the question of which rules apply to the cast and to the audience. Schlingensief's theatre work is an attempt to intervene in the current socio-political discourse. His productions focus on issues such as right-wing extremism, neo-Nazi rehabilitation programmes, a fake million-dollar TV game show, the Iraq war as well as attacks on art and theatre themselves.
