Between math notebooks and ink stains, chalk dust and overhead projectors, pencil sharpeners and water colours, everyone sits well-behaved and quietly in the classroom and studies. Really everyone? No way! Today it’s time for a class outing! We pack away our notebooks and take our mates by the hand. Raise the curtain! The field trip conveys us to undiscovered areas of the educational system. In the whirl of disciplinary strategies and lunch boxes, the audio walk and classroom play morph into an adventurous excursion into the unknown domains of a Berlin school.
The performance group Hain/Kapsner/Mahlow/Romanowski was formed at the Mousonturm Frankfurt. The four artists connected because they all had the same question: How can we make challenging political theatre for children and young people? Theatre that takes its audiences and actors and actresses seriously and yet remains empathetic. The resulting works should not just be considered for young people, but for everyone.
