Raum 305: Wir wollen nie nie nie / Watch & Talk im Anschluss
A visually stunning myth of two inseparable bodies stranded in a cold world. On the steps of a mysterious staircase, the two protagonists live through a whiplash of raw brutality, deep trust and whimsical poetry. But soon a little misfit forces his way into the grotesque world of the big guys.... A fusion of aerial acrobatics, puppetry, physical theater and dance. "Watch and Talk" describes an evening that consists of a jointly attended and a subsequent moderated discussion about what has been seen. In a guided discussion, the piece is examined from various points of view and questions are discussed together that relate both concretely to the work and, beyond that, to guiding questions of the work, its artistic classification, or social relevance. The format is an exercise in analyzing contemporary works together and learning about artistic approaches and thus new perspectives on circus today. The event is open to the public, interested spectators are welcome! In cooperation with the Department of Scenic Research at the Ruhr University Bochum and the Project Office New Circus Ruhr. Also playing the 18.11.2023 (without talk)

About the Location

For a small epoch, Herne was known primarily by one term: as the "city of hammer drills. Before the Second World War, Herne owed its second name and fame to the entrepreneur Heinrich Flottmann, who constructed a single machine from hammer and iron - an important step for the modernization of mining. Today, other focal points determine life in the Emscher city. The Flottmann halls on Flottmannstrasse are still one of them - but they have long since ceased to be an industrial workplace. Today, the region knows the Flottmann Halls as a cultural center where contemporary visual artists find plenty of space and light for paintings and sculptures, where well-known cabaret artists and comedians make a stop, where new circus, puppet theater or modern dance is performed, where sometimes contemporary, sometimes popular music can be heard and where diverse insights into the independent theater landscape are possible.
