WHY NOT THE BEAR? #THECAGE
partizipative Installation und Performance

Lena Binski

Die gezwungene Isolation ist eine Belastungsprobe. Ohne Zweifel ist die Freiheit das Wertvollste, was ein Mensch hat. Aber wie fühlt man sich, wenn man das ganze Leben lang eingesperrt ist? Vermisst man die Freiheit? Oder hat man sich mit der Situation abgefunden und leidet gar nicht? Wie interagiert man mit dem Geschehen außerhalb des Käfigs? In einer immersiven Performance begegnet das Publikum einem Bären, der allein in seinem Käfig sitzt und beobachtet. Als Zoobesucher*innen ist das Publikum selbst gefordert, Improvisationsimpulse und Ideen zu liefern, um das Geschehen auf der Bühne voranzutreiben.

 

ENGLISCH: The forced isolation is an endurance test. Without a doubt, freedom is the most valuable thing that a human being can have. But how does one feel when one has been locked up their entire life? Does one miss freedom? Or has one made peace with the situation and doesn’t suffer at all? How does one interact with the events that take place outside of the cage? In an immersive performance, the audience encounters a bear that is sitting alone in its cage and observing things. As visitors to the zoo, the audience itself is called upon to provide impulses for improvisation and ideas in order to move the events on stage forward.
