Hoping for…

Cactus Junges Theater, Theater im Pumpenhaus, Münster

Six people are moving. They throw up clothes. Everyone is dressed in yellow. The stage is a circle and the audience sits around it.

What is peace and how can we achieve it? In “Hoping for...”, the six-member transcultural ensemble uses scenic performances and choreographic images to explore the sad, serious and hopeful aspects of conflict and peace. The collage is an invitation to the audience to join in illuminating the diverse issues and facets of one of the most important topics of our time.

Available from until 28.5.2025 as videoon demand in the media library.
