The Theory Café, initiated in the frame of Theater der Dinge as a reading group on the topic of "artificial bodies", takes place as a video chat. You …
Genders are constructed - not at least by things. On the one hand, this means that we can construct different genders with different things, and on the other hand, that things can also - somehow - have genders. Gender is more than blue or pink, Mars or Venus, Barbie or Ken.
So what are the things that - personally - make up our gender identity? Are these things that we wholeheartedly affirm and cheer for, or also things that we are ashamed of because we find them clichéd, for example? Which things do we not dare to do, and why? How can things - also on stage - perform gender differently?
The online workshop Theory Café invites you to exchange and reflect on the body and its things. In a cosy, relaxed atmosphere, we start from our current experiences and deepen them through small theoretical readings and creative exercises.
