In the late summer of 2021, our new performance FlyingDrinks will go on tour through five residential districts in Leipzig. It enables encounters for the residents of these housing complexes and creates a neighborhood atmosphere.
We come with a mobile stage, perform in front of the apartment buildings and use streets, courtyards or parking lots as venues. The audience take part from their window seats and balconies and interacts via phone with the performers. Through participation in the performance we offer a connection between the separated housing units.
We aim to reach different social classes and age groups: high culture, subculture and people who do not (regularly) go to the theatre. We want to bring culture to the people and enable them to participate in cultural life.
