A cooperation with the evangelic parish Petrus-Giesendorf on the occasion of 125 years of St. Peter’s Church
What was? What is coming?
Participants of a workshop of the stage design course at the TU Berlin have found inspiring forms of expression for everyday life and utopia of the place. An exciting play with light and shadow, sound and image opens up new perspectives on the historic church space.
The St. Peter’s Church on Oberhofer Platz in Berlin-Lichterfelde has an eventful history behind it – an unknown future lies ahead. This year it celebrates its 125th birthday. The congregation is taking this moment in the church’s history between yesterday and tomorrow as an opportunity to take a break: artists were asked to look ahead with reference to the past and to develop utopias for the next 125 years.
Thus, the caesura became a program: Under the title Interrupt (signal from computer science that stops an ongoing process), the 9 master students of the course Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum were given the task to make the place tangible with its past and on the basis of the question “What could the future of St. Peter’s Church look like?”
Inspired by the walk-through Christmas installation in St. Mark’s Church in 2020, which was also a collaborative effort, an installation is being created in the church space on the history and utopia of the site: an exciting play with light and shadow, sound and image that opens up new perspectives on the historic church space and encourages exchange.
