The performance "Dissolvery" has been moved to 09.11.2022
Due to the current war in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, the club performance DISSOLVERY by the Ukrainian collective nonexistheatre will be rescheduled from 11 to 9 November 2022. The performance will take place simultaneously in Kiev and Dresden. Due to the ongoing missile attack on Ukraine by Russia, another venue for the event had to be found in Kiev. In DISSOLVERY, the party is the frame for a ritual that is about saying goodbye and starting again. With the club performance, three artists from nonexistheatre in Kiev and three associated Ukrainian artists living in Germany will bridge the gap of 1,400 kilometres. Both venues will be connected with a live stream. DISSOLVERY will take place on 9 November from 6 to 8 pm at the Dresden club location objekt klein a. Admission is free. The performance is a collaboration of the festival Fast Forward (10-13.11.22) of the Staatsschauspiel Dresden with the Dresden club and socio-cultural centre objekt klein a, supported by the Goethe-Institut.
