Exophony: zwischensprachensprechen


Due to the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), Exophony: zwischensprachensprechen had to be postponed.


with participants from SILENT UNIVERSITY RUHR, IMPORT EXPORT KOLLEKTIV and OLDSCHOOL at SCHAUSPIEL KÖLN
facilitators: BRIDGET FONKEU, BASSAM GHAZI, DAVID VOGEL

The work in progress Exophony: zwischensprachensprechen can be seen as a place of encounter for lived multilingualism. It is the result of a three-day workshop of the same name at Schauspiel Köln, in which participants explore on a practical level how communication can succeed in a real, diverse community and actually strengthen it. Workshop participants, who come from different generations and have various mono- or multilingual backgrounds, will develop a performative work in progress that addresses questions of communication within linguistically diverse groups and seeks to actively include the audience. Everyday communication, here the object of this collective artistic exploration, becomes in this way a lived ‘cooperative sphere’ and a driver of coexistence in a diverse society.


Start: 4:00 pm
Multiple Languages
Venue: Schauspiel Köln,Schanzenstraße 6-20, 51063 Cologne
Free Admission
