Surprised, unbelieving and incomprehensible, the Western world watches its own children leaving their homeland to go to war, which they call "jihad" and the Western world "terrorism". This war is directed against the values and principles of the societies they come from, against democracy and tolerance.

by Sergej Maingardt and Rosi UlrichTo determine if I am living in a simulation, I had to simulate myself. I decided to send a clone of myself on a journey. We both, the clone and I, decided to walk a little while together and write down everything we saw, then we separated and wrote down everything we experienced.

After so many truths, mythological interjections and so little prospect for the future, the audience is tired but enthusiastic. ... There are follow-up performances and hopefully many invitations to other stages. This play is the most impressive one that could have been experienced this year. (Michael S.

DanceLight Performance by and with Yui Kawaguchi 5 years after the award-winning solo andropolaroid, the Japanese dancer and choreographer is developing a new perspective on the relationships between her own culture and the foreign culture.
Movement does not have to remain silent, but may be emptied. While Anja Lais speaks the text, Jimenez acts at dizzying heights above the roofs of Raderthal. The audience is very close to the drama of this dialogue and the shivering body of the dancer. Only the glass is between us, who at every moment feel our role as voyeurs, and the fight behind the glass. This glass then also becomes a metaphor of powerlessness, like a fly which is stuck in a preserving glass, there will be no rescue for this woman. This is the abyss in every single life that Beckett so decisively measured. "Rockaby" presents itself as a strong production whose experience you take with you into everyday life. Thomas Linden, Choises 02/15)
Bleikamp calls the evening "a theatrical requiem", which revolves loosely and easily, sometimes fluffy-humouristic sometimes philosophically profound around the very different music stars, who only have similarities in their meaning and size. The audience is also challenged: during karaoke to a Motörhead concert recording. Amy meanwhile serves earplugs or schnapps. Couple dance with Prince, Lemmy and Amy expects a few guys to a pretty good Bowie parody. All in all a nice anarchic evening, played by a great ensemble with lots of great memories of four grandiose artists. (Choises)
"The 'ERSCHÖPFTE DEMOKRATIE' is not a frontal theatrical sprinkling, but rather a kind of participatory experience. ... while you are sitting and developing these ideas, you often think: Yes, why not? ... All this is such a radically positive evening. These utopias inspire, you notice that in the subsequent public discussion, where the ideas were passionately discussed." Michael Hölzen in: rbb Radioeins
The struggle for interpretive sovereignty knows many losers - especially those who try to maintain reality as a model. The artists, who are otherwise primarily active as fiction administrators, now see themselves as responsible for measuring the map of truth in a new way. Instead of lamenting the recently unrealistic reality, theater-51grad dares to creat a creative brainstorm and questions the ability of unbiased perception. (Robert Cherkowski, Choices 11/17)
