Thea­ter as agi­li­ty park

Resi­dence in the Chorgasse 

With the “Par­lia­ment of Things, Ani­mals, Plants and Algo­rith­ms” the artists Serai­na Dür and Jonas Gill­mann explo­re cross-spe­ci­es sto­ry­tel­ling and living tog­e­ther. Under the mot­to thea­ter as agi­li­ty park, the two tog­e­ther with five pigeons beco­me the first inter­spe­ci­es thea­ter com­pa­ny. With com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on kits, séan­ces, mobi­le dovecote and rea­ding groups, they prac­ti­ce tog­e­ther with the audi­ence a future, less anthropo­centric coexis­tence. Inspi­red by theo­rists such as Lynn Mar­gu­lis and Don­na Hara­way, the Resident*s search for ways of rela­ting to the non-human that account for the com­plex ent­an­gle­ments in a dama­ged world.

“And it’s worth it. Becau­se it’s a vaca­ti­on for the mind to think about the rela­ti­ons­hip to the non-human and about a dif­fe­rent world­view than the anthropo­centric one.” (NZZ)
