About LEAP – Into the unknown

Is a plate really just a plate? A dinner party dreams of the leap that makes the impossible possible. The dinner runs into difficulties, the plates really aren’t just plates, but instead a landscape of objects that constantly change and must always be reinterpreted. In their movement, the objects and performers come together to create fantastic images. Let´s jump! Like in a completely new type of circus. But be careful - the objects are fragile and dangerous! Without paying careful attention, everything can end up broken. There is a lot at stake: the shared dream of flying, the dream of daring a new world together - it’s nothing less than that. LEAP ... into the Unknown is just that, the leap into the unknown that is necessary for daring to try to something new.

About Theater Thikwa

Theater Thikwa is “Germany’s most well-known theater where artists with and without so-called disabilities come together to make theater” (rbb Kulturradio). Thikwa presents performances, dance theater, text-based theater and music theater in its own performance venues in Berlin and in guest performances around the world with no fear of experimentation. The foundation of this “miracle of the stage” (Der Tagesspiegel) is the Thikwa Werkstatt für Theater und Kunst, the Thikwa Workshop for Theater and Art. This is where the 44 members of the ensemble work. Theater Thikwa works especially with the personal characteristics of its performers and seeks out new forms of expression beyond the fixed definitions of genres. In doing so, it continuously works with external artists from the independent performing arts community. Thikwa received the renowned Martin-Linzer-Theaterpreis in 2018 and was awarded the Theaterpreis des Bundes, the Federal Theater Prize, in 2019, one of the most important theater prizes in Germany.
