Gegenuber / Face to face

Hamm, 2017
A production by

Helios Theatre

Company, Germany, Hamm
HELIOS Theater is a Children's and Youth Theater situated in Hamm/Germany.

Two people have found their way together. They make the same moves, speak the same words, again and again, smoothly and in harmony with each other. It could go on like that forever. But then one starts deviating, following his own pace. The formerly friendly ritual becomes rigorous rules… With surprising video projections, humorous rhythms and playful texts, a story of human encounter unfolds – a topic that matters to four-year-olds as much as to their parents and grandparents.

Director Barbara Kölling has created an interdisciplinary and multilayered staging. „Face to Face“ is a cooperation with author Steffen Moor and visual artist Alexandra Dementieva (Brussels/New York), who has worked on social psychologic questions in the field of video installations for several years.
