next generation workspace – international research residency
In cooperation with Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Theaterhaus Frankfurt, the children’s theatre festival “Starke Stücke” is offering an international residency in three phases in the field of theatre for young audiences. Twelve international theatre makers, independent artists from the region as well as students of the Hessian Theatre Academy (HTA) interested in working in this field are invited to attend the festival “Starke Stücke”. During their stay, the group will visit shows, meet artists and colleagues and develop initial ideas for project proposals of their own, which they continued to work on at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm during the next residency phase in summer. These projects will be further developed in a third residency phase and then finally presented to the public at the next “Starke Stücke” festival. Please register to attend by writing to email@example.com.

Four female astronauts write history! On their way to a new exoplanet – a planet outside of our solar system –
they answer questions about life in space: how do you make peanut butter sandwiches in zero gravity? How do
you go to the toilet in space? How do you explain the Earth to extraterrestrial beings? And what really happens
when you have to sneeze in your astronaut helmet?
TAKE THAT #1: „Es ist doch eine schöne Sache über Kanzlerkandidaten zu reden und dabei Blutwurst zu essen“ von Susanne Zaun und Marion Schneider (Age 12+) Performance
Solveig Hörter (DE), Hanna Steinmair (DE)
Sat 23.3., 3.30 pm, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Studio 1, Frankfurt a. M.
Teenagers – who would actually prefer to concentrate on other things – visit a theatre performance at
Künstlerhaus Mousonturm. Then they discuss what they saw, ask questions, rant and praise it – and in doing
so, assimilate the previously seen performance for themselves. The result is a re-enactment of the
performance. But: one that is based on their own interests. Take That!
Dream vs Reality (Age 8+) Performance
Jeremiah Ikongio (NGA)
Sat 23.3., 5 pm, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Probebühne 1, Frankfurt a. M.
More than 5000 kilometres lie between Lagos in Nigeria and Frankfurt am Main. In joint online gaming, distance
plays no role. The screens look the same on both sides. So what is the difference in whether you live and play
in a city such as Lagos or in Frankfurt? While wild battles rage on the phone, there is time for a chat about
lengthy ways to school, cool hobbies and favourite snacks!
Play Whole Way (Age 8+) Game / Installation
Anna Hasche (DE)
Sat 23.3., 6.30 pm,Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Foyer, Frankfurt a. M.
Whether in the biggest or smallest things, more things are hidden everywhere. Worlds in worlds in worlds.
All have their own rules. Even in the theatre. These rules are often respected, ignored or secretly outsmarted.
But they can also be translated into formulas and … rules can be played with. On the way to the theatre, in
front of the entrance or in the foyer. Step by step: Play Whole Way!
1001 Entschuldigungen (Age 8+) Performance
Max Brands (DE), Sara Marchand (CA), Hanna Steinmair (DE), Bastian Sistig (DE)
Sun 24.3., 2.30 pm, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Studio 2, Frankfurt a. M.
Hey. Sorry. Excuse me. Forgive me. Is there an appropriate way to apologize? Deceiving, whispering, pleading,
trembling – and tears for special effect – all is fair, when apologizing! In their sorry lab, performers work their
way through the entire field of conceivable apologies, no matter whether for skipping class, for various
everyday mishaps or fundamental injustices.
