Berlin has long been built on quagmire. Therefore, it is not surprising that some structures of today's Berlin have their blueprints in the baroque era - the allegedly grand old times, whose facades are being restored in a way that creates dramatic effects. matthaei & konsorten devote themselves to the humid, sweltering delirium of that epoch. On an expedition into the mucky city, they invite their audience to the remote, exaggerated, hardly beautiful sides of Berlin: How about dancing a sarabande on the sewage fields below the border zone? Or to crack the Mäusebunker with rhetorical rams? In September, matthaei & konsorten launch their new work Die Sumpfgeborene (The Swamp-Born) with wondrous actions in the city, before finally premiering in November. There the shameless affects and magnificent stagings of social abysses will be crossed with the unstoppable narrative apparatus of the telenovela.

Since 2000, some 50 works of diverse orientation have been created under the name matthaei & konsorten. In addition to productions for the stage, installations and discourse productions, the development and continuing evolution of new formats for urban landscapes has been a focal point of the work for several years. Productions of matthaei & konsorten are therefore to be found in all the places that are also frequented by their players or spectators in their own lives. Younger productions are Diesseits vom Kulissenpark (Kunstfest Weimar), Im Apparat der Kriege (2014 Sophiensaele + radio version for RBB and others) and The town behind the woods (2015). Between 2015 and 2016 they presented the series Idiotensalon at SOPHIENSÆLE.
