Blickfelder 2019

 

In addition to many other locations in the city, the popular Blickfelder festival will appear once again at the Gessnerallee to delight children, adults, and everyone else who wants to join in by attending the international guest performances in the fields of theater, dance, performance, and puppet theater. The productions joyfully probe the boundaries between fiction and reality, between performers and the public, and between truth and lies. They pose existential questions, such as: «How can children’s theater make a piece about the theme of war?» Impressive answers to this question are evident in Krieg [War], a production by Theater Artemis. Or: «What does the Nordic drama Peer Gynt have to do with the politics of European migration?» A clear response to this issue is demonstrated by the group Qendra Multimedia and author Jeton Neziraj. In the video installation Remember the Dragons by the group called BERLIN, twenty-one children from all over the world tell incredible stories. And visual artist Miet Warlop claims that even big bears cry. Is everything true or just a bunch of lies?
