Every City Needs Its Hero

In cooperation with the Theaters Chemnitz, concept ideas for stage space and costumes for the production “Every City Needs Its Hero” by Philipp Löhle have been developed in the summer semester 2021. Under the direction of Frank Hänig and in close cooperation with director Matthias Huber and dramaturg Stefanie Esser, students developed various designs. The stage and costume designs by Lioba Bangert and Noelia Contreras were selected and have been realized for this theater season.

When the world outside becomes more and more insecure and brutal, can one simply lock oneself up at home? Don’t we have to declare war on injustice? Four characters increasingly lose their self-determination in dealing with a society that is more and more characterized by a mercilessly conducted distribution struggle. Jörg sells alarm systems and door locks, but the crooked business with these security systems is much more profitable. However, he and his employee Daniel have to learn firsthand that collaborating with criminals is life-threatening. After Alma witnesses a brutal attack on her boss Jörg, she begins to barricade herself in her apartment. Daniel’s neighbor Ella, on the other hand, orders an alarm system for her art gallery, but has very special plans for it. And news of cold-blooded crimes keeps spreading – and suddenly also of a superhero who seems to stand in the way of all violence.

Premiere is on October 1st 2021 at 7.30 pm in the Spinnbau of the Theater Chemnitz.

KAHO Komplex

As part of a reactivation, the listed Karlshorst Theater in Berlin, vacant since 2008, will be used in the future as an interdisciplinary and modular venue. For the festival KAHO Komplex from the end of September to the end of November 2021, the stage tower will be designed installatively for various play scenarios and different artist groups. Aware of its history as the “House of Officers” and with an eye on the future cultural location, the festival serves as a pilot for future programmatic uses. The task included the basic design of the stage tower for all events, a special installative space scenario for the radio station of the collective Cashmere Radio, a setting for the filmmakers* Marlies Pahlenberg and Sonya Schönberger. Under the direction of Prof. Kerstin Laube and Verena Hemmerlein and in collaboration with the artists, the students have developed various concepts.
The realizing teams are Hannah Beeck & Lena Mehner with Dorian Goerke (Mapping) and Laura Lara AlvarezAndrea Palacios & Lara Scheuermann (Cashmere Radio).

Strindberg_JULIE

Cooperation with the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts, Directing Department

Lecturers:
Prof. Kerstin Laube (TU), Prof. Robert Schuster (HfS EB), Britta Geister (HfS EB)

Within a 3-week intensive workshop, students of the 2nd semester together with directing students of the HfS Ernst Busch developed associations, approaches and contemporary concepts to August Strindberg’s play “Fräulein Julie” through the visual research phase and investigation of the text by means of “action analysis”.
Exploring an associative context and approaching the core of the play, different approaches emerged as model-like “attempts”.

Students TU:
Lioba Bangert (Gast UdK), Kristin Buddenberg, Camille Daur, Kristel Khan, Matteo Marangoni, Qian Qin

Students HfS:
Nicolas Crasemann, Linda Glanz, Amelie von Godin, Tobias Klett, Rosa Rieck, Marten Straßenberg

Art space Protestant Markus church community in Berlin-Steglitz

Walkable installation of the “Christmas Story”

For the empty church space of the Protestant Markus Church in Berlin Steglitz, an installative art space in the form of a contemporary translation of the “Christmas story” (birth of Jesus) was realised until December 24th. In addition to the development of a contemporary scenography (spatial design, light, projection, video, sound), archaic elements such as fire were integrated. As a transit, entry and exit from the church space are of particular importance, and the church forecourt and tower were also included in the design. The installation of an overall concept was realised by a group of eight students on site.

Tutor: Prof. Kerstin Laube & David Roth
Accompanying pastors: Wolfram Bürger, Sven Grebenstein
Students: Marie Akoury, Maria Angélica Guerrero, Tina Hübner, Malte Knipping, Nikolai Kuchin,
Charlotte Niedermeyer, Anna Niedringhaus, Hannah Ursula Schmidt

Opening of the installation: December 24th, 2020
Duration of installation: until  January 10th, 2021
Location: Karl-Stieler-Straße 8A, 12167 Berlin

Premiere: The Shape of Things

The play “The Shape of Things” by Neil LaBute was developed as a realization competition in cooperation with the Theater Chemnitz. Under the direction of Norman Heinrich and Frank Hänig, the students developed various designs for stage and costume. The stage design by Nikolai Kuchin and the costumes by Tina Hübner were realized.

Adam studies English studies and works as a guard in a museum where he wants to prevent the art student Evelyn from spraying a penis on the fig leaf of a naked statue of a man that has been added later. For Evelyn this was a protest against censorship, for Adam it was simply a violation of the rules. The opposing figures nevertheless become a couple. Self-confidently, Evelyn transforms the gauche and shy Adam, replaces his glasses, changes his haircut, his clothes, sends him to the gym, turns his life upside down. Amused, his two best friends, Jenny and Philip, watch Adam’s metamorphosis. They still have no idea that they too are locked into this fateful relationship. “An abysmal satire that examines how far people are willing to go to realize their visions.” (The Independent)

Neil LaBute (*1963 in Detroit) studied film and theater studies, writes plays and directs theater and film.

Premiere is on the 2nd October 2020 at 7:30 pm in the acting theater – big stage of the Theater Chemnitz.

Stage Design: Nikolai Kuchin (2. Semester, TU Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum)
Costumes: Tina Hübner (2. Semester, TU Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum)

SUPERKUNST – Final Exhibition 2020

The COVID-19 restrictions allowed us little more than to do our daily shopping. The supermarket  became a meeting point in a society of consumption. But consumption without spectacle? What would the world be without art, but a dystopia of passive walkers on their phones?
We kept creating during the quarantine. Since supermarket walks are still allowed, we created SUPERKUNST – a peculiar supermarket. Where you can find meat dreams, dairy love, frozen success and happiness juice. It’s a place where you discover how to desire, experience spatial arts in different formats and reflect upon whether art is a product to consume or a place to meet. We invite you to 2020 BBSR exhibition to find out. The works include installations and projects from the fields of scenography, performance, video and stage design.

Opening: Tuesday, 25th August 2020, 6.30 pm

TAPETENWECHSEL/TURNING POINTS – Premiere

Tapetenwechsel (= change of scenerery) – a dance evening with five choreographies by the dancers of the Landesbühnen Sachsen GmbH in cooperation with the master’s course “Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum” of the Technical University of Berlin.

The cooperation between the Dance Company of the State Theatres of Saxony and the Master’s course “Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum” lives from the examination of different artistic approaches and narrative styles.
The young dancers of the Landesbühnen, who stem from Italy, Croatia, Ukraine and Russia, have come a long way and have already experienced some joyful or even painful changes of sceneries. The outfitters and video artists from Germany, Serbia, Austria, Colombia and South Korea accompany the choreographers’ creative confrontation with the turning points of their lives. They associatively link stage, light, costume and video sequences with the themes of loss, the search for identity and the fear of a future that may already be lost.

Premiere 11.01.2020 at 7:30 on the studio stage of Landesbühnen Sachsen, Radebeul.

Further shows on the 31.01.2020, 29.02.2020 and 29.04.2020

The model as a means of communication:

Ideas become visible on the basis of models: design and craftsmanship, theory and practice are worked on together. The models take up a clear creative position and communicate what has been thought of both within and outside the discipline. Questions about abstraction, reduction, materiality, materiality, construction and technical implementation are always answered on the model.
