Artist Talk after 'Nasty Peace'

It’s not great living in the 21st century: people have been protesting the rapidly rising rents for years at Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg. copy & waste will send the audience there for an audio walk - and right into a distribution war for living space, money and love. Under the headphones you'll hear just what it soundslike - the divvying up of the loot. And after you give back your headphones, you are invited to discuss these disturbing matters with the artists and other participants.

About the place:

Kottbusser Tor

Kottbusser Tor is a Berlin U-Bahn station located on the U1 and U8. Many Berliners use the affectionate term Kotti. It is located in central Kreuzberg. The area has a bad reputation for the relatively high, mainly drug-related crime rate, instances of which have recently become quite rare in most other parts of the district. The original Kottbusser Tor was a southern city gate of Berlin; the road through the gate led via the Neukölln suburb to the town of Cottbus.(Quote: Wikipedia)

About the performance:

Nasty Peace

While people from the East and West celebrated euphorically in 1989, one system began to swallow the other whole. The masters of global capital let their riches grow while the rest could only look on. Game of Zones: Property, cooperatives and biographies were offered up for the hunt, bagged and tagged. But who wins when society erodes like this? Who were and are the big winners and losers of thedistribution? And what happens to us when what is being divvied up is increasingly privatized, when we only want to own a thing or a person to earn profit from them?It's time to vehemently deny the claim that there hasn't been a war here in seventy years. copy & waste will stage the big final battle: swords, war horses and dragons - all weapons are allowed in this civil war called privatization. After all, it's already spread to remote parts of the city and into the body of each individual.

About the performers:

copy & waste

copy & waste have created theater pieces, performances, installations and films about life in cities since 2007. Nasty Peace is the first part of their trilogy PUBLIC SHOWDOWN about the transformation of urban space. copy & waste already implicitly dealt with the transfer of property at Kottbusser Tor in a collaboration with WestGermany in 2009. For Nasty Peace, they've returned packing a great deal of research material: conversations with residents, observations of everyday life, sociological, scientific and philosophical texts about property and privatization play as significant a role as Berlin Circle, a piece by Charles Mee inspired by the same source as The Caucasian Chalk Circle and fantasy material such as Game of Thrones and Masters of the Universe.
