What will become of rural spaces if it is cities that mark the future of our planet? Composer Hannes Seidl and stage director and filmmaker Daniel Kötter work together on multi-part projects of music theatre that bring everyday life onto the stage. Like the first part of their trilogy “Stadt Land Fluss” (which was dedicated to life in the cities), “Land” also transports outside space into the interior while addressing the stage as a place of temporary coexistence of performers, musicians and audience. For their project Kötter/Seidl moved to a rural commune between Frankfurt and Cologne, took time there to make music, setting up their own rules and thinking about the future. From the countryside they now pull back to the theater and transfer the farm’s everyday life for five hours onto the stage of Sophiensaele. The audience gets to be resident of this farm – a place to work, eat, read, watch movies and take time to listen. What will become of the city if it’s the countryside that marks the future of theatre?
