by minus.eins

Analogue and digital theatre worlds meet on an equal footing in the work of minus.eins. How do online communities operate and how does digital co-presence work? What disappears in this process and what new elements emerge?

From the first months of the pandemic, the team of minus.eins, in co-operation with Schauspiel Dortmund and the Academy for Theatre and Digitality, have been researching purely digital, web-based theatre experiences in the virtual realm. “Das HOUSE – ReInventing the Real” unites the episodes “Das HOUSE 0.1” and “Das HOUSE 0.2” and invites viewers to an exclusive guided tour through an unusual web format. We will begin in Dortmund’s city centre, in the vicinity of Theater Dortmund. For the past two years, there has been a shutdown and all public life has come to a standstill. But there seems to be something going on at the theatre. Live music, a kind of opening event, all kinds of weird characters – and then there is the rumour that someone has been building an exact replica of the cathedral of Notre Dame on stage for years. What is happening in this digital interim world? What is already real, what is still virtual?

Please note:
For interactive participation in “Das HOUSE”, we recommend that you use a desktop or laptop computer with a stable internet connection and the browser  Google Chrome. To avoid noise interference and feedback, please use a headset or headphones with a microphone. These technical requirements don’t apply if you would merely like to watch the stream of the performance.
