Insights into the programme “Figurentheater” (2nd year)
Inspired by the “Seventh Journey” of Stanisław Lem’s “Star Diaries”, the students embark on a expedition into the infinity of space and repeatedly get caught in mysterious time loops.
The Figurentheater programme at the Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts is moving its classes to Erlangen for the duration of the 23rd international figuren.theater.festival and will be represented at the festival by all its students. Spontaneous actions and encounters can be expected. First-year students will present manifestos for a contemporary Figurentheater on Wednesday, 17 May, and Saturday, 20 May, before the performances at the Markgrafentheater. Various individual and cross-year works will be shown at selected venues, some at late hours. More information on handouts distributed at short notice and shortly before the festival online.
