Is it possible to create the world all over and to give it one’s very own imprint? With “Nationaltheater Reinickendorf”, artist duo Vegard Vinge and Ida Müller have made some significant steps towards the realisation of this gigantic project. The self-constructed theatre building in a storage hall in Reinickendorf is surrounded by the “dramaturge’s tunnel”, outlining their own sources of inspiration, and the “Panini Cathedral”. With an obsessive, excessive formation via comic-book masks, painted scenery, voice-over acoustics, serial structures and audience participation, the two artists and their ensemble not only find connections between canonical works like “Hamlet”, “The Master Builder” and “Tosca”. Vinge also unflinchingly acts out the primal scene of his own creative activity in a Freudian sense. In other words: There’s a lot of personal shit involved, as a specific action and self-reflection within a gesamtkunstwerk that keeps its audience captivated in its contradictions until the next morning.
