Property changes consciousness. It divides friends, gives one person power over others and excludes. Property is taken forgranted. And people don’t talk about it. Nothing is so constitutive of our society, or our lives together; nothing has such a divisive effect on our community as property.

Berliner Theaterpreis 2019 for She She Pop

The Stiftung Preußische Seehandlung will award the performance collective She She Pop with the Theaterpreis Berlin 2019 for its outstanding service to German-language theatre. The jury’s statement declared: “In their clever, entertaining and, in the best sense, popular theatre works, [the collective] have helped, among other things, to establish the practice of collective authorship in addition to traditional directorial and literary theatre. They have also developed a practice of working in solidarity, a feminist counter-project to the traditional structures of municipal theatre.”

The award ceremony will take place on the 5th of May 2019 during the Berliner Theatertreffen in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.

Invitation for “Oratorio” / Theatertreffen 2019

“Oratorio – A collective meditation on a well-kept secret” has been invited to the Theatertreffen 2019.
The Jury Statement says: „It’s not proper to talk about money. The performance collective She She Pop couldn’t care less and sets out to explore the topics of private property, inequality and shame. (…) Like always in She She Pop’s work, the political nestles inside the private, in the biographical material. The revolutionarily beautiful costumes by Lea Søvsø can serve as a flag or as a cape. And the actors on stage are just as versatile. In short: A show that asks the right questions and refuses to accept any glib answers.”
