[12+] Alter Saal
Production for hearing, hard of hearing and deaf people / Nomination for the Jugendstückepreis

Imagine you’re in a game show and you don’t know why you were invited. The other candidates arrive. A new AI is set to be presented. The audience cheers as the eccentric showmaster enters. The rules of the game are easy, the participants play, talk and dance. Strangely, candidate number seven does not appear. The participants grow restless. It's unfair, that someone is part of the game, but isn’t playing. When there are more and more signs suggesting that number seven will never come, the show master lets it slip: The AI can predict people's death date. And the show is set to capture participants’ reactions to their remaining time, live on stage. Enraged, they stop the show master and start to share their dreams. How does it feel to be loved and seen? What does it mean to use the time you have and to enjoy it? Will they destroy the AI and find or create their own lifetime? 

This production is for the hearing, the hard of hearing and the Deaf. We capitalise Deaf to signal that it refers to a culture and an identity.
