Andrea Hensgen: Ein Käfig ging einen Vogel suchen

Picture book reading for children from 3 years and adults

A young, empty cage, which does not yet know much about the world, wishes that a bird would live in it. Then from far away, where there are no cages, a curious bird comes flying, straight into the cage. The old cat in the yard is already looking forward to the easy catch, without suspecting what a stout-hearted cage and a strong bird can achieve together. Loosely based on Franz Kafka, Andrea Hensgen tells a timeless story about friendship and freedom in "Ein Käfig ging einen Vogel suchen" (Knesebeck 2022). With illustrations by Mehrdad Zaeri.

BETHY TRIO

BETHY TRIO was developed during a short stay at Schloss Wiepersdorf and brings together text fragments by Kathy Acker, Bettina von Arnim, Dodie Bellamy and Sarah Schulman, among others. In a staging that aims at the possibility of trans-historicity, the words deal with science and poetry, the individuality of the genders and the expressions of overcoming Christian ideals of love, moving between historical epochs. With Tilman Hecker (direction), Anna Papathanasiou, Ivan Cheng, FRZNTE (performance), Scott Bolman (lights), Lars Paschke (costumes) and Thorsten Hoppe (sound).

"...everything is very doubtful in the countryside." (Achim von Arnim) – Is there another way?

Panel discussion

The problems of agriculture in the Niedere Fläming are of existential magnitude. Common to all interlocutors is that they want to bring life and work in the Niedere Fläming in harmony: Landscape as a home for people and an economic area at the same time. But of course there are different interests – and also complaints about external determination, about losses, about "not being able to do it anymore" and "not being able to go on like this". How can something change? And can we contribute to it?
