As part of the “Frequencies” festival, the opening of Modes of Operation will take place at Sophiensæle. A continuously accessible video installation shows portraits of artists involved in the first season of the project: Leonie Böhm, Samara Hersch, Florentina Holzinger, Satoko Ichihara, Henrike Iglesias, Christiane Jatahy, Susanne Kennedy, Ligia Lewis, Anta Helena Recke and Mariana Villegas.
Modes of Operation is a living online archive of contemporary theater. An archive that does not focus on the performance, but on the working method. Because the fact that a current generation of artists is turning away from the patriarchal authoritarian idea of the “artist geniuses” and is looking for new forms of collaboration deserves to be made visible and disseminated. In this sense, Modes of Operation understands the working methods in the theatre not only as an aesthetic, but also as a social and political practice that can have an effect beyond the field of the arts. Modes of Operation could represent its own form of theatre: a theatre that sees itself as a laboratory for the development of forms of social coexistence and work. A theatre that offers a stage for the discussion of its modes of operation. A theatre that constantly questions itself and the world in which it seeks its form – with an open ending.
