Kultur der Vielfalt

Chancen des Perspektivwechsels
Theater, Tanz, Performance, Workshops und Diskurs

„Power, give ‘em power
Give my people power
Extra hour for power ”
– will.i.am von The Black Eyed Peas

Für viele Menschen in Deutschland gehören Rassismus und/oder Diskriminierung zum Alltag ihres Lebens. Davon sind Künstler:innen und Kulturschaffende nicht ausgenommen, im Gegenteil. Die Kulturinstitutionen in Deutschland stehen erst am Anfang eines strukturellen Wandels. Der inter- bzw. transkulturellen Arbeit kommt im Spannungsfeld von Globalisierung, zunehmender nationalistischer Tendenzen und jahrzehntelanger Migrationsgeschichte eine wachsende Bedeutung zu. Neben dem Ausbau von regionalen Initiativen und Formaten ist die überregionale Vernetzung und Zusammenarbeit entscheidend, um den Ansatz der intersektionalen Diversität auch in den Darstellenden Künsten weiter voranzutreiben.

Vom 23. bis 26. September verbinden wir verschiedene Vorstellungen, Diskussionen, Musik sowie eine Ausstellung an unterschiedlichen Veranstaltungsorten in Mülheim an der Ruhr. In zahlreichen Workshops, Lesungen, Podien und Vorträgen u.a. mit Rebecca Ajnwojner, Golschan Ahmad Haschemi, Michaela Kuczinna, Dan Thy Nguyen, Dr. Emilia Roig, Mark Terkessidis und Akteur:innen unserer Kooperationspartner:innen Interkultur Ruhr und Silent University Ruhr werden viele unterschiedliche Perspektiven sichtbar.


September 23 – 26

Culture of Diversity

Opportunities for a
Change of Perspective

Theatre, performance,
workshops and discourse

„Power,
give ‘em power
Give my people power
Extra hour for power ”

With the stanza “Power, give ‘em power, give my people power, an extra hour for power”, the black singer will.i.am from The Black Eyed Peas‘ cover version builds on the lyrics of the song “Power to the People” by John Lennon. The empowerment trainers Celia and Modou Diédhiou have also given their workshop the title “Power to the People”, a universal code for recognition, participation and equality.
For many people in Germany, racism is part of everyday life. Artists and creative professionals are no exception – quite the contrary. Germany’s cultural institutions are only just beginning to bring about structural change. Intercultural and transcultural work is becoming increasingly important in the delicate interplay of globalisation, mounting nationalist tendencies and decades of migration. In addition to expanding regional initiatives and formats, supra-regional networking and collaboration are crucial when it comes to further advancing intersectional diversity in the performing arts.
The theatre alliance vier.ruhr is formed of the Theater an der Ruhr, the Mülheim theatre days „Stücke“ (Pieces) and the Ringlokschuppen Ruhr cultural centre. It provides a diverse programme for different types of audience.
From 23 to 26 September we are combining various performances, discussions and exhibitions at different venues in Mülheim an der Ruhr. Based on the repertoire and the work at the various locations, we will be asking questions about structures, aesthetic forms and practical working contexts. We are looking for artistic quality criteria that take diversity into account and for how to make the necessary adjustments to theatre practice. In numerous workshops, readings, podium discussions and lectures with – among others – Rebecca
Ajnwojner, Golschan Ahmad Haschemi, Michaela Kuczinna,
Dan Thy Nguyen, Dr Emilia Roig, Mark Terkessidis and some of our partners from Interkultur Ruhr and Silent University Ruhr, many different perspectives will come to the fore.
