You’re sitting in a theatre. The play is about you, about an author and about the world – the way the author imagines it – sooner or later, when you go back out into the streets. The play fills itself with your ideas.
But maybe you will remember that better than someone else’s story.
“Barely 17 years old, the world in the 21st century is already in turmoil and shaken by conflicts. Our days swing between two poles: how we think about and organise ourselves is changing radically and uncontrollably; but at the same time, nothing changes. Trembling, civilisation continues, while at the same time reality is becoming more and more subjective, emotional and hard to understand,” write Tanya Beyeler and Pablo Gisbert in 2017 about their play LA PLAZA. In 2015, they opened the sixth edition of Fast Forward at the Staatstheater Braunschweig with SCENES FOR A CONVERSATION AFTER VIEWING A MICHAEL HANEKE FILM. The group, in the meantime internationally successful, now pays a visit to the festival once again with a text version of their play LA PLAZA conceived especially for this edition - in other words with a theatrical installation that plays with the line between art and life, observation and fiction, challenge and seduction in their inimitable way.
