Telephone conversations with philosophers of the 20th century: The "Philosophy Machine" is an artificial intelligence device that brings to life dead thinkers. Utilizing algorithmic original voice* montage, the past and present collide and merge. The audience can enter into lively dialogues by telephone with Hannah Arendt, Karl Jaspers and others, deliberating over timeless and urgent topics such as freedom and censorship, dissidence and utopia. What playfully emerges is a spectrum of collective social discourse and action, transmitting philosophical strategies of the 20th century into the present.
INTERROBANG include Till Müller-Klug, Nina Tecklenburg, Lajos Talamonti and Guests. The group develops new theatre formats in order to discuss current social phenomena and questions. In installative theatre spaces and participative game settings, the audience can experience, test and reflect on new scenic communication models. Playing with theatrical community thus becomes playing with present and possible future social forms and value systems. Interrobang plays on German-speaking stages and international festivals. Callcenter Übermorgen ran 2015 on the Heidelberger Stückemarkt. Preenacting Europe was performed in 2016 at the former Czechoslovak Parliament in Prague. interrobang-performance.com
