»Richtung Dschörmannie« (»Direction Dzjurmanny«)

A 3-day Theatrical-Literature-Music-Slam-Thing, in German 

Three evenings. Five performances. Three premieres. Twenty performers/artists. One exhibition.

For the Performing Arts Festival 2017
At the Club der Polnischen Versager, Ackerstr. 169, 10115 Berlin-Mitte

On three evenings in June the theatre collective Protokoll B will perform three texts from authors who weren’t born in Germany, but write in German. They’ve had to adopt this language, had to assimilate it, acquire, embrace, incorporate it, in order to put their thoughts to paper for us. They make us look at ourselves with fresh eyes, so we can maybe experience something new – about us, about this new old county Germany and about this strange funny new old language German.

Furthermore, artist Sybille Neumeyer created an exhibition especially for our literature slam, with pictures, drawings and an installation piece.
