Online short film project by the theatre group „Die Freispieler“

12 people live in the same house. For how long? Forever. They don't know each other. Everybody lives within their own four walls. They've forgotten what longing feels like. Until one of them wakes up and can't fall asleep anymore...

In several online group meetings, individual coaching sessions and filming days, the ,,Freispieler'' will work together to create a short film based on the characters from the performance "Hotel Lichtblick" from February 2020. Together they will search for a poetic visual language on the theme of loneliness and the longing for connection with one's own wishes/desires and the other who is so close and seems so far away.

The deluders, an identity experiment

An online theatre project

The deluders - an identity experiment. Five normal people decide to take part in an experiment. 4 weeks they will be someone else. They will dress differently, speak differently, do different things. They will discard all their habits and put themselves in someone else's skin. They will record this process on video. At the heart of it all is the question: do I decide who I want to be? Do I create myself and my reality or am I the result and plaything of the circumstances in which I live? Is it possible to change from the ground up, from one moment to another?

This question or scenic framework is the starting point for the course scenic writing and character development. In individual coaching sessions, online group appointments, acting tutorials and film tutorials, the participants gain insight into the development of characters and solo scenes. Each participant has worked on 2-3 characters during the semester and was individually accompanied in finding roles and writing short scenes, as well as playing in front of the camera.

The results are put together in two short films to form a story.
