Andreas Liebmann

We – a solo

I would like to form a group with you

How can community be thought / experienced today? The concrete situation in the theatre serves to simulate community models without forgetting that the core of any definition of community is an invention, a settlement by means of language, and that there is no description of a collective without a narrative approach. To pursue the question of how community tells itself, Andreas Liebmann combines different stylistic elements: written film, movement, text and imagined interaction.

In the theatre space are Andreas Liebmann, his cello and the audience. Who is the group here? Personal memory, scientific investigation, physical dislocation, musical relief, cinematic asceticism, declarations of war, friendly words encircle the fragile, eternally threatened human connections.
