TALKING OF PROHLIS – table theater

Who is the good soul of Prohlis?

What is on their minds?

Together with the directors Christiane Wiegand and Harry Fuhrman from Berlin, missingdots developed a table theater with and for citizens from Prohlis. During a phase of research, different citizens, initiatives, schools, youth centers, op-shops, Die Tafel e.V., etc. were interviewed about the situation in the neighborhood Prohlis. Scenes, which show everyday life in the neighborhood, were developed based on this material. The scenes were staged with interaction of acting, puppet show and object theater at the table. The audience was sitting around the table. Every scene ended with an open question to the audience, so that the people could start a conversation with each other.

Up to 25 table theater scenes were shown at different places in Prohlis.

Based on this project, the following project On the Tracks of the Giant – The Festival was developed.

HERO togo

Prison Chemnitz

Development of a play with imprisoned women at the Prison Chemnitz

Premiere 2016

Who is my hero in life? What is my achievement? What hero would I want to be?

Heroes of the everyday world are searched and found: your colleague, your friend, your own daughter, your lawyer, the unknown person, with whom you share a heroic moment. Fictional heroes say their wishes out loud. Fighting heroes strike a pose and silent heroes get a chance to speak.

The play was shown at the Prison Chemnitz for other prisoners.

Direction and development of the play: Julia Amme, Katja Heiser

Performers: imprisoned women at the Prison Chemnitz
