Nile Koetting: 


Next Waves Theater #23

VOLKS CENTER is an audiovisual piece by NILE KOETTING for NEXT WAVES THEATER, inspired by the history and architecture of the VOLKSBÜHNE in Berlin.

The video and sound present a simulated guided tour of the VOLKSBÜEHNE in an unknown future time. The audience will be taken to different spaces in the VOLKS CENTER: an imaginary foyer, the backstage-operation room, the canteen, etc. to explore the texture of an imaginary theater through the history of the house, its architecture, and technical conditions of unrendered time and space.
