Junges Forum – Hochschule für Schauspielkunst „Ernst Busch“ Berlin (DE)
Insights into the programme “Zeitgenössische Puppenspielkunst” (3rd year)
While at the digital festival edition in 2021, the pre-diploma pieces of the 3rd year students could only be featured as recordings in the programme, this year they are back in Erlangen in person. Out of seven pre-diploma works, Sven Tillmann will present the performance “Sand fressen” (Gorging sand) during the festival.
Even if this island was never his destination, he would have ended up here sooner or later. Where at the beginning survival was still the top priority, it soon becomes clear that a much bigger enemy is lurking here: loneliness. One story about fears and dependencies and another story about failure. What they have in common is the attempt to avoid the inevitable.
The presentation will be followed by a talk between theater makers, students and teachers to promote creative exchange and give impulses for current and future projects.
In addition, the students – Madita Kuhfuhs, Tanja Linnekogel, Robert Richter, Almut Schäfer-Kubelka, Leon Schamlott, Annika Schaper, Laura Schulze, Tizian Steffen, Maximilian Teschemacher, Sven Tillmann, Sophia Walther – will show results from their design project during the festival. More information on handouts distributed at short notice and shortly before the festival online.
