Are you easily seduced? What can you use to seduce others – with language, stories or deeds? And what are actually special Thuringian seductions? We would like to talk about this with you and cordially invite you to our storytelling cafés.
These storytelling cafés are part of the joint project »Dirty Talking – Thuringian Seductions« by KUNSTFEST WEIMAR, ACC Galerie Weimar and the Federal Agency for Civic Education. It deals with different forms of seduction - from fascination and temptation to manipulation and disinformation. The storytelling cafés are meant to be a place of exchange where everyone:r can have their say. Our goal is to collect your personal stories, experiences and ideas on the topic of seduction and to incorporate them into the production of the play »The Tribune« by Mauricio Kagel. The play is about a ruler who seduces his people with endless speeches - portrayed by actor Dominique Horwitz, who will also be present at various storytelling cafés. With your stories and anecdotes, we also want to bring the tribune to Thuringia - and at the same time get into exciting conversations in advance at the 15 Thuringian locations where the play will be performed this summer.
In addition, your stories and anecdotes can be included in and enrich the exhibitions of the artists of the ACC Galerie Weimar in Burgk, Finsterbergen, Friedrichsrode, Neustadt/Orla and Schmalkalden. The participating artists will be present at the storytelling cafés. If you can't be there but still want to participate, you can also email us your thoughts and stories on the subject of seduction to email@example.com by July 24 2022.
