PICK OF THE DAY
You cannot miss this event.
In the organizer's words:

by and directed by Angela Löer, Eva Plischke and Frank Oberhäußer / guest performance Turbo Pascal

What do the things we accumulate in the course of our lives reveal about our origins, our thinking, the time they come from? Frank, a white, middle-aged Western academic, rearranges his favorite things, heirlooms and cupboard corpses against the backdrop of the zeitgeist with the help of the audience. Frank is in his mid-40s and doesn't like to throw things away. His Neukölln apartment is full of things from different phases of his life. Now his father has died and new mementos and heirlooms have been added. What value does this or that thing still have for him or for others? Some of them used to be a central part of his identity, but today he sees them in a different light.

With "Common Things", Turbo Pascal create a solo in which Frank deals with the different social voices in his head. What goes on the shelf, what is better left in the box, what can or must go in the bin? And what should perhaps be passed on one day? Can the audience help him? The solo is not only an inventory of Frank's personal legacy, but also a commentary on flexibility and adaptability in a constantly changing world. How many times in a lifetime are you willing to change?

You need a smartphone with mobile data to participate in the interaction.

"Common Things" was created for TD Berlin's Monolog Festival 2023.
