LOLA ARIAS / OPEN BORDER ENSEMBLE

A PROJECT BY LOLA ARIAS AND THE OPEN BORDER ENSEMBLE

Director: Lola Arias

“If you start to do theatre, you tacitly accept a whole series of conventions. But at some point, you start to ask yourself questions: Why?” - Argentine director and writer Lola Arias is not satisfied with theatre. It is reality that interests her. And it is reality which she reshapes theatrically to such an extent that the people on stage with their real-life stories and their real-life experiences during Lola Arias’ show, become the spectators’ unexpected spokespersons or emotional delegates.
With her new project, Lola Arias will again work at the Kammerspiele with experts - experts on their own lives. In the course of time, she will get to know the four members of the Open Border Ensemble, will listen to their stories, their biographies, their memories and their hopes. With these artists in exile, she will develop a theatre show in Kammer 1 that tells of art and life, settling in and nomadic life, and of their first months in Munich at the Kammerspiele.
