Few genres of performing arts have so consistently conquered new aesthetic fields in recent decades as figure and object theatre. Now, for the first time, “Der Dinge Stand / The State of Things” looks closely at the complex ways that its performative methods and materials relate to social and political phenomena. Through original essays, interviews and extensive visual material, this workbook presents the “theatre of things” and its positions on digitalisation, protest culture, body image and such themes as home, migration and practices of memory. This is a bilingual publication (German/English).
