Alles unter Kontrolle

For his new project, Oliver Frljić shifts the entire Gorki into a state of emergency. The theatre – as body, as city – through which the spectators make their way. The point of departure and reference is a thought by Walter Benjamin: »The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the ›state of emergency‹ in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must arrive at a conception of history that is in keeping with this insight.« The question of fiction and reality, of normality and exception is raised again and again. Six scenes form a kaleidoscope-like overall picture. Who actually represents whom? Who speaks for whom and about what? Legitimised by whom?

The piece is presented at successive stations throughout the house. The audience moves through the theatre in groups of 10 people each. Each group starts at a specific time, which can be chosen via ticket booking.

There are no seats; footpaths through the house are part of the production. The performance lasts about 70 minutes (no break) and is only partially barrier-free. Reduced tickets are available for a shortened barrier-free version.

In German and English. For the groups with start times at 6:00 & 7:40 PM, respectively 4:00 and 5:40 PM, translation into the other language will be provided.

Please arrive at the box office foyer 10 minutes before your booked starting time. Unfortunately, a later admission is not possible.

Please note the applicable rules for attending the performance.
