Culture of Diversity - Opportunities for a Change of Perspective
How do diversity-sensitive cultural activities work? In addition to the expansion of regional initiatives and formats, supra-regional networking and cooperation is crucial in order to further advance the approach of intersectional diversity in the performing arts in Germany. Solidarity networks, coalitions and alliances play an important role here.
The theatre alliance vier.ruhr, consisting of Theater an der Ruhr, Mülheimer Theatertage "Stücke" and Ringlokschuppen Ruhr, combines a variety of performances, discussions and exhibitions at different venues in Mülheim an der Ruhr under the slogan "Cultures of Diversity", while looking for artistic quality criteria that are sensitive to diversity, as well as necessary adjustments to theatre practice.
From 23 to 26 September, we will combine various performances, discussions, music and an exhibition at different venues in Mülheim an der Ruhr. In numerous workshops, readings, podiums and lectures with, among others, Rebecca Ajnwojner, Golschan Ahmad Haschemi, Michaela Kuczinna, Dan Thy Nguyen, Dr. Emilia Roig, Mark Terkessidis and actors from our cooperation partners Interkultur Ruhr and Silent University Ruhr, many different perspectives will become visible.
The programme is organised by vier.ruhr in cooperation with PostHeimat Netzwerk and Solidarische Landschaften (Solidary Landscapes).
vier.ruhr is a cooperation of Theater an der Ruhr, Ringlokschuppen Ruhr and the Mülheim Theatre Days "Stücke". Funded within the framework of NEUE WEGE by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of NRW in cooperation with the NRW KULTURsekretariat.
