OPEN BORDER

Projects regarding diversity, mobility and migration

The Open Border Ensemble

Of the season 2018/19

For years, the Münchner Kammerspiele have been collaborating extensively with theatre directors and teams from all over the world, investing in diversity and broadening cultural and aesthetic discourses. In 2017/2018 Season, we have invited performers from Syria and other artists to join our team as part of the Open Border Ensemble. Their experiences were at the core of Miunikh-Damaskus, a mobile theatre play by German director Jessica Glause and What They Want To Hear by Argentinian director Lola Arias and on-site project X-Shared Spaces. They extended the permanent ensemble of the Münchner Kammerspeile to include new aesthetic perspectives negotiated in the democratic, open, and analytical setting theatre offers as well as engaging with the cultural life of the city and the theatre. For the 2018-2019 season, their engagement will continue throughout different inclusive aspects of the new performances of the Münchner Kammerspiele. They will go in search of new stories, contributing to shaping new formats and theatrical languages towards a transnational theatre that curves a space for various narratives from foreign cultural and socio-political contexts. Against a backdrop of crises migration, exile and violence worldwide, The ensemble wants to open up new collaborative paths and oppose artistic isolation.
