steirischer herbst celebrates an anniversary!

In 2017, steirischer herbst celebrates its 50th edition. Because of that, there wil be anniversary projects throughout the festival.

Nature Theater of Oklahoma (US)

Die Kinder der Toten – Der Große Dreh

The Nature Theater of Oklahoma ventures the impossible: creating a film version of Elfriede Jelinek’s novel “Die Kinder der Toten”. Filming around Neuberg an der Mürz is, at the same time, a live performance. Anyone who wants can come along and watch and, above all, join in!

Where Are We Now?

steirischer herbst is opening a philosophical canteen: in this casual setting we will be serving performances and talks that open up the leitmotif for discussion – from Oceanic thinking and alternative logics of being-in-the-world to a decolonial view of a Eurocentric “we”.

 

Prometheus Unbound

Who was Prometheus and what does his liberation have to do with reorientation in the modern-day chaos of world views? In their works for this year’s herbst exhibition, artists explore Eurocentric thinking and invite the audience to open their eyes to new parameters of thought when they look at the world.

Berlin (BE)

Zvizdal

What if we decide after the apocalypse that it’s not all over? For their theatrical video documentary, over five years the Berlin group followed the couple who never left their village near Chernobyl.

Oh Magic

How can art and spirituality be brought together? Simon Mayer mounts a choreographic concert with a man-machine lineup culminating in a celebration of liberated joie de vivre.
