This PerformanceTheatreAction interlinks the critique of our addiction to permanent feedback to the unlimited media marketing of individal life expressions, and the promise of happiness proffered by social evaluation and transparence to a new, de-medialised challenge that transcends the still anthropocentric world view of theatre: in light of an imminent climate catastrophe, humans have become a high-risk environmental factor.
The text underlying this production, die beteiligten (the implicated) by Kathrin Röggla, is a semidocumentary expostulation on social hypocrisy and ruthlessness – and a literary reflection of the contradictions and absurdities of our media-dominated daily life.
The project, structured over several phases, searches for communal creative spaces: spaces of “aliveness” in a theatre that caters for a radically changing society and its yearning for solidarity by developing new, post-human forms of meaning and sensibility.
An initial expression of the project was supported with a residence by the Redes de Teatros Alternativos Sta. Magdalena (2017/2018).

Christina Schmutz and Frithwin Wagner-Lippok have worked together since 2005 as an artistic collective: all of their projects emerge from the confrontation with subjects and texts, and by the intersection of those texts with others by deconstructing, fragmenting and recombining them, dissolving the boundaries between acting, choreography, installation, happening and performance.

Christina Schmutz has a PHD in Theatre Studies, is a theatre director, investigator and teacher. She combines practice and theory performing lectures and issuing publications related to new practices and aesthetics in theatre (she is an active member of working group Performance as Research IFTR [International Federation of Theatre Research], and a member of GTW [German Society of Theatre Sciences].)

Frithwin Wagner-Lippok is a theatre director and theorist who runs workshops and collaborations with different Universities and artists and scientists in Berlin, Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro. His theoretical-practical projects focus on contemporary aesthetics, performativity, and affectivity in today’s theatre. He teaches at the University of Hildesheim where he is finishing his PhD thesis on theatrical events and affective space.
