Theater delivery in pizza box

What does reality mean at Kottbusser Tor? UNSICHTBARE STÄDTE KOTTBUSSER TOR explores the fantasy of urban life perspectives through an interactive performance machine in a pizza box. The machines will be built and filled on site at Vierte Welt and Goodlab in collaboration with students from Jens-Nydahl Elementary School and Mittelpunktbibliothek Wilhelm Liebknecht / Namik Kemal.

The interactive performance machine in a pizza box allows for a pandemic-safe, haptic and participatory theatrical experience that will be delivered directly to the audience's home via cargo bike from November 30 to December 4 (15:00-21:00) when pre-ordered by phone (at +4915730150140). The audience will be introduced to the world of the Invisible Cities Kottbusser Tor within 45 minutes. The Kiez Theater im Pizzakarton opens the imagination to the creative transformation of your neighborhood through description, sounds and forms.

Thus, the audience's personal versions of the city are recorded with the pizza box and subsequently presented online as well as in public space. Without human performers*, the machine can talk to the audience, record responses, take photos and videos, and show images printed on transparencies and changeable with mechanical rollers, while respecting all hygiene rules.

The Invisible Cities Kottbusser Tor collected by the machine will then be processed into short videos and juxtaposed in dialogue with each other both online and in an Epilog exhibition in the shop window of the Mittelpunktbibliothek Wilhelm Liebknecht / Namik Kemal, Jens-Nydahl-Grundschule, Aquarium Südblock, Multilayerladen and Vierte Welt from December 8-11.  This participatory performance action strengthens the idea of diversity as an identity of the district around Kottbusser Tor and aims to foster the curiosity and imagination of the city's inhabitants in self-empowered creative use of digital technology.
