talk at IFTR conference 2021

At the upcoming conference of the International Federation of Theatre Research I will present a talk on LIGNA’s performance 2,3, viele Gänge (Hamburg 2018). The title of the talk is LIGNA: on how not to forget, and I will investigate how local knowledges of a nearly vanished city quarter can be approached with the means of an audiowalk / performance. The Hamburg Gängeviertel (a quater with small alleyways) was a quarter where a mixed bunch of people lived: from small merchands to day laborers, from sex-workers to the Swing Youth, and where the first Jewish reformist temple was built. Most of this quarter has been destroyed throughout the last 100 years, so how can this barely visible traces and hidden stories be remembered and connected to the lives of today’s audiences?


The talk is presented at General Panel 5, on June 15th, 22.15-23.30 pm (CEST).

Regarding Listening. On the theatricality of experimental listening situations

Talk on February 11th as part of the lecture series „fragility of sounds“.

In this talk, I will explore the theatrical dimension of experimental listening situations, including reflections on the impact of anti-pandemic-constraints on live performances from the experimental scene. Among others, I will talk about Berlin-based experimental Splitter orchestra‘s project Code of silence (2020/21).
