Joana Tischkau


Part of "Alles ist Material. 20 Jahre 'Postdramatisches Theater'"


German /  English /  60 Min.

[Translate to EN:]

“PLAYBLACK” works with the ambivalent potential of the copy – as an expression of solidarity and as a strategy of caricature. Using the format of the “Mini Playback Show” Joana Tischkau investigates the cracks of representational logic in her first production at HAU. “PLAYBLACK” bids farewell to the white concept of universalism, sharing instead Black German experiences.
