The artists collective andcompany&Co. was founded in Frankfurt am Main in 2003 by Alexander Karschnia, Nicola Nord and Sascha Sulimma. Working together as co-directors they form an open network that new artists from various disciplines are constantly joining, working at the interface of theatre & theory and politics & practice. andcompany&Co. is based in Berlin at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, with other co-producers including the FFT Düsseldorf and the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt am Main. The group is regularly invited to international theatre festivals. Aside from performances, andcompany&Co. often develops lecture-concerts, play developments with ensemble actors as well as audioplays. Their entry into the topic of digitality and digital diet came in 2014 with the lecture-concert „Fluch der Minerva“ (International Conference “Einbruch der Dunkelheit”, Volksbühne am Rosa Luxemburg Platz), followed by “Archipel Google: Big Dada Revue” (Theater Neumarkt 2015) as well as the commissioned work “2045: Müller in Metropolis“ (as part of the festival “HEINER MÜLLER!” 2016).
