PROTOKOLLE PRODUZIEREN – PRODUCING PROTOCOLS
drawing at following pieces of theatre by zweite liga of kunst und kultur

2012 I was invited to draw at at a three days staging/happening “Tagung der Kommune” (something like “Conference of the Commune”) in the function of one of the recorders. The happening was about writing a play in the moment of acting, which means discussing the ideals of a community, political action and about “the true (right) life in the wrong film”  – and recording this. Every participant, every visitor and passer-by was instantly part of the play. Happened at Forum Stadtpark, Graz.

At the play “Chronik der vorbeilaufenden Ereignisse” (“Chronicle of events passing by”) in the summer of 2013 I protocolled all of performances. The setting was on the one hand on a street, the Annenstrasse in Graz, on the other hand in a store, where the audience was sitting, and a second layer of the play was happening. Aspects of “passing by”, literally and in the sense of extinction, was the essence of the play.

In autumn of the same year “Der Druckauftrag” (“The print job”) was performed at the Volkshaus, Graz. It was about the difficulties of an office stuff writing an e-mail together with the concern: “It is over” an with the content of closing down the office. Topics like refusal and self empowerment were treated.
