Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear

Part of "NO LIMITS - International Theatre Festival Berlin"

Performance

Audio Description / German / English / With German simultaneous translation / With English simultaneous translation / 120 min.

In the midst of an onslaught of news reporting about forced migration, climate change, the destabilisation of Europe, rising nationalism and the erosion of human rights, J & J ask exactly the right questions: What are the causes of fear and what effects does fear have on us. How do we deal with it? How could a “space for potential” look like, in which ideas for another future can develop?

Taking the “The Art of a Culture of Hope” as their title J&J create a long-term project about our values, our fears, our hopes and about our shared future. “The Art of a Culture of Hope” consists of three parts: There are the performance evenings “Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear“ and there is the workshop format “Space for Hope”. The results of these dialogues in turn find their way into the third part, the “Archive of Hope and Fear”.
 

Together with their performers J&J face their own fears in “Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear“ and they report on searching, finding, losing and resuscitating hope. In Berlin they and Jeremy Wade invite you to “Tender Provocations of Hope and Fear“ – an evening of sharing – with performances, readings and project presentations about experiences with fear and hope.

For the NO LIMITS festival J&J, together with Jeremy Wade, have invited several artists and activists with disabilities to share their experiences. www.theartofacultureofhope.com
