Strength & Health: March

“Das English Theatre Berlin und sein brillanter Ten Minute Play Contest.”  Tagesspiegel  This March 2013, SHAKESPEARE IM PARK BERLIN will wash up on English Theatre shores – ravenous and flea-bitten from its summer exploits – in order to convene an epic eating competition (also known as the fourth annual Ten-Minute Play Contest).

The playwrights themselves will grease the gears of a well-oiled (or deep-fried) wurst-production and consumption apparatus.Three talented Fressers will gobble down everything the writer-kitchen can pump out.

And a Greek-ish-Karaoke-Chorus of directors will preside (high) over the tightly scheduled affair.

There will be fries and franks (and gluten-free veggie tempura). Ketchup. And lots and lots of Mayo. Just who will succumb to and who will help to perpetuate the cultural sausage factory? English Theatre will be divided into five, integrated and interdependent installations, coordinated and executed by three ensembles – actors, writers, directors – in perfect harmony. The authors occupy the bathroom equipped with oil, potatoes, and a plethora of condiments.High above the peanut gallery, the director-team will perform every word of the “winning” plays with the help of their handy-dandy Karaoke-Algorithm. And the actors? Well, they eat. And eat. And eat. And eat.
