The Gorki is closed. To the audience, so to you, you to whom the theatre belongs and for whom we work. Behind closed doors, however, we have carried on. In doing so, we have followed all the regulations to the letter. We have, as our audience is accustomed to with us, experimented with new forms of theatre. You will have the opportunity to check them out in Alles unter Kontrolle by Oliver Frljić and the ensemble when we open again. Until then, recordings of this season’s premieres are on offer in the Gorki Stream on our website.
This issue of our programme magazine was also created under Covid conditions. Arno Widmann, whom we were able to acquire as resident philosopher, interviewed – mostly through video chat – from the end of November through the beginning of December, 18 people working at the Gorki this season. The youngest is 19, the oldest 82. They come from Israel, Croatia, Poland and Turkey, from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK, from Singapore to Iran. Directors, actors, authors. In the theatre, concepts are frequently the subject of discussion and debate. But we know, of course, the theatre lives on the people who make it. They are the subject of this issue. In interviews and through the photos that Esra Rotthoff took of them over their screens.
Three actresses, three generations: Aysima Ergün, Sesede Terziyan and Sema Poyraz talk about where they are right now.
