The Intervention of Loneliness
“A city is a large community where people are lonesome together.” – Herbert Prochnow
This performance will be premiered on the 6th and 7th December 2019 at Uferstudio (Studio 1).
We are living in an age of loneliness. Social media, modern work ethics and urban way of living all contribute to a system that exposes us to loneliness on a regular basis and on a global scale. How can we confront the loneliness we experience around us? This collaborative performance probes the politics of loneliness and asks how we can transform it from a place of separation and isolation to become a cause for collective action.
Co-produced by Scenario Pubblico (Catania, Italy), English Theatre Berlin (Berlin, Germany) and The Esplanade (Singapore).
