Aktionstheater PAN.OPTIKUM (D)

    TRANSITion

    Opening Ceremony Kunstfest Weimar 2017

    For over 30 years Aktionstheater PAN.OPTIKUM from Freiburg has been developing extensive and extravagant performances for public places. Their play «TRANSITion» will be the opening performance of Kunstfest 2017 on August 18th at the Weimar market square.

    «People have always focused the pursuit of happiness and ended up in wars.» This sentence by Lebanese-Canadian author Wajdi Mouawad was the initial point for PAN.OPTIKUM’s play. Associative scenes reflect thousands of years in history dealing with the topic of societal borders in our minds and in concrete, of tolerance and the compatibility of various religions or ways of life. The scenes are based on Mediterranean street theater and open space for surprise and dreams: While the actors are floating high in the air the spectators beneath are surrounded by several playing sites. Language, music, light and shadow interact impressively and the performance’s highlight will be a huge fireworks.
