"Hi. Nice to see you“, says Arne and beams at the camera. Via video he looks back upon his former theatre work for his followers. Five years of documenting social change, five years of educating, five years of living at the poverty line. He talks about the extinction of species, climate change, water scarcity, refugees, poverty, injustice, Fort Europe, wars and fascism. What could theatre have done differently, other than repeating the narratives of the coming disaster? "The whole world is a stage", says Arne, "and its collapse is a treat."
Arne Vogelgesang studied Directing at the Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna. He experiments with different compositions of documentary material, new media and performance. His content is focussed on political radicalization, deviant methods and digitalisation of humanness.
