Time. It is time for the theatre which opens up spaces. Together with the residents of the Ameos Clinic we want to experience the space around us, using theatre-didactical methods and use this as basis for improvisation. We will be approaching already familiar environments, but also unfamiliar ones such as the theatre and performance festival transeuropa2012 to take a new impetus into familiar space from there. >> Wir stimmen an.
