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 Alvarez, Andrea Palacios & Lara Scheuermann (Cashmere Radio).
