The Theatermaschine is an exhibition of the pieces of the students at the institute for Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft in Gießen. It shows, what is being produced there - perfomance, installation, dance, art, non-art - without distinctions. When Theatermaschine is producing, everybody is happy and paints their nails silvery. This year, Theatermaschine goes to school: She's new in class and brings some vegan packed lunch and a packed beer. And entries and exits that enter and exit hemselves. And also eight pounds of hospitality. The whole pale country is invited: gym and sleeping bags are prepared.
Centre of the festival is the old Sophie Scholl school, Rooseveltstraße 7-9.
