At Residenz, the venue for independently produced performative theatre, this season will see creative experimentation going hand in hand with political provocation. The productions will be dealing with ecological issues, feminist topics, political debate culture and imagined futures.
These analyses are always driven by the question of how we can shape the way we live together as a society. The invited artists come from the fields of dance and choreography, theatre and performance, music and visual art, film and comedy. What unites them is that they explore the limits of their own disciplines and develop their very own theatre visions in interdisciplinary and chiefly international teams. The newly formed production platform Katapult, in which we work together with Schaubühne Lindenfels and LOFFT- Das Theater, represents a new, extended effort to strengthen Leipzig’s performance scene.
