Die Höhle auf Erden (2022, Work on Commission Schauspiel Hannover)

World Premiere: September 23rd, 2022, Ballhof Eins

We associate home with rituals. Something that we are at home with. At home with like our actual homes. It’s better to have a home that feels cosy, even if cosy can turn creepy at times. A place that was only just created or that may have been uninhabited or even inhabited by someone else before. But when we move in, we make it our own. Now it is occupied. Is that the same as owned? Do I take something from someone when I occupy it? And do I have the right to do that?

Antje Pfundtner and her company have created a subtle analysis of the possibilities and connections from the homelike to the un-homelike. They celebrate the gathering and its visitation, and consider whether our own body may be a home, too.
