Summer break - not at Impulse! Blogs, videos, essays, documentations...

13 July 2016

Impulse Theater Festival 2016 had a successful run, but throughout this summer some things continue, others can be re-lived online.

Nature Theater of Oklahoma „Germany Year 2071“
The Nature Theater of Oklahoma for example continued shooting their science fiction „Germany Year 2071“ until 17 July in Berlin. It will be premiered at Impulse 2017 in Cologne. Its making is accessible through the website of Monopol. arts magazine.
And the blog of directors Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska was also regularly updated throughout:

Materials on Independent Theater
Food for thought is also always ready at Impulse: On our website section „Material“ – a continuous publication in progress circling around questions of independently produced theater – we recently published texts by Hans-Thies Lehmann & Helene Varopoulou, by Talking Straight and and She She Pop reflect on their „relationship“ with members of the Ensemble of Münchner Kammerspiele.

Video Review 2016
Live is always best, but whoever missed the festival, now has the chance to review at least some of it.
The video clips that present excerpts of the production and everything around can be viewed here.

Public Movement „Make Art Policy!
Dana Yahalomi / Public Movement’s hotly debated project with cultural politicians of all relevant parties in NRW which took place in Düsseldorf city hall can also be re-viewed through Nachtkritik.
A conversation on the topic, the relationship between art and real politics – with among others Dana Yahalomi and Oliver Marchart – is available as audio stream through Voice Republic.

„Learning Plays“ at Voice Republic
Also available via audio file is our Symposium „Learning Plays“ on concepts of radical pedagogy. Participants were Markus Bader, Dirk Cieslak, Nils Erhard, Valeria Graziano, Stefano Harney, Florian Malzacher, Ahmet Ögüt, Alessandra Pomarico, Rubia Salgado, Mårten Spångberg, Nora Sternfeld & Dmitry Vilensky and others.

The next live edition of Impulse – focusing in Cologne and for the last time under artistic direction of Florian Malzacher – will take place from 22 June to 1 July 2017.
