piece development by Marie Jordan and Romy Weyrauch
Get into the fray until your body shakes and the hut burns! Let's really argue about what argument actually is. There are arguments everywhere: on television, at home, on the internet, among friends, arguments with and between parents or with teachers.
But how does good arguing work – and is it even possible? Based on interviews with young people, Romy Weyrauch and Marie Jordan examine the requirements for a good argument. Hurt and anger, guilt and shame, power structures and patterns of exclusion are examined. How political is arguing and how fun can arguing be? – In their production, apologies are stammered and reconciliations are practiced, swear word battles are fought, roles are swapped, each other is listened to, laughed and comforted and mountains of guilt are piled up.
Romy Weyrauch, Marie Jordan and the ensemble stage arguing as a pleasurable cultural practice that means encounters between people and sees different points of view and perceptions not as being against each other, but as being together.
