Visi­on

We want our pro­fi­le to con­vey an open­ness which pro­mo­tes diver­si­ty. To this end we take a clear stance, sup­por­ting local­ly, glo­bal­ly, social­ly, and ter­restri­al­ly rele­vant topics and issu­es that reflect our own cri­tique of the­se con­cerns and ack­now­ledge thea­ter as art and the insti­tu­ti­on of thea­ter as a repre­sen­ta­ti­on of society.

Our inten­ti­on is to invi­te enga­ge­ment through visi­ons, posi­ti­ons, topics, and ques­ti­ons. We are con­vin­ced that every visi­on is born out of love for a cau­se, for human bein­gs, for life, and for the world. And we know that one of the grea­test chal­len­ges is to explo­re how the love of a cau­se can be con­vey­ed and how stan­ces and aes­the­tics can fer­ti­li­ze each other and go “viral.”

We belie­ve that cul­tu­ral insti­tu­ti­ons can achie­ve this, not by being eli­tist but rather by ensu­ring that par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on occurs as a mat­ter of cour­se – without frau­du­lent labe­ling. We belie­ve that thea­ter as art and thea­ter as an insti­tu­ti­on are princi­pal­ly sui­ted to reach the­se goals.

We belie­ve that thea­ter as art and thea­ter as an insti­tu­ti­on are princi­pal­ly sui­ted to reach the­se goals. We play with what it means to be a thea­ter and cul­ti­va­te mimicry as a stra­te­gy and a sub­ver­si­ve mir­ro­ring of the present.

The Neu­markt will be play­ground and think tank, cul­tu­ral gathe­ring place and mul­ti­me­dia labo­ra­to­ry. Taking place at this loca­ti­on will be thea­ter pro­duc­tions, thea­tri­cal expe­ri­ments open to the public, digi­tal for­mats, and dis­cur­si­ve seri­es of events, occur­ring on an equal foo­ting and inter­sec­ting in the pro­gram­ma­tic and expe­ri­men­tal set­up, not stra­te­gi­cal­ly but pas­sio­na­te­ly.
Ago­nistic plu­ra­lism.
Not canon, but con­tem­poran­ei­ty.
No for­ced mar­ria­ges, but rather pas­sio­na­te artis­tic affairs and love sto­ries. No ivory tower, but a mar­ket­place for ide­as and inspi­ra­ti­on. Infectious.
