The programme, titled HOME GAME 2011, features a variety of formats and includes an international symposium, a walk-through archive of HOME GAME productions and an extraordinary festival. These will be supplemented by workshops for dramaturges and artists which appeal to both professionals and general audiences. The event will focus on the following questions: What kind of new theatrical forms and artistic strategies have been developed? What impact has HOME GAME had on the image of municipal theatres? How can one integrate new theatre forms into the daily operations of the theatres? How can the experience gained from the HOME GAME projects be transferred and passed on to others? What developments can we expect in the future?
HOME GAME 2011 wishes to review its past achievements and offer theatre artists the opportunity to share their experience and network with one another. Along with dramaturges and artists from German theatres, the event has invited a number of international theatres, artists (collectives) and curators to present their experience of similar developments in their own countries. The international guests, who have all ventured in innovative directions in the areas of project work and audience dramaturgy, include artists (collectives) like SIGNA (DK) and Rimini Protokoll (D). The cooperative projects, workshop programmes and urban interventions organised by these groups will encourage participants to find ways to continue the project work after the HOME GAME Fund concludes.
