We, die Zerstreuten (the scattered), are a multicultural theater group based in Berlin-Köpenick. We are convinced that opposites create friction and that conflicts are the fuel of the theater. That is why we dedicated ourselves in our first production "AUF & Abprall - von der Kunst Krisen zu meistern" ("Bounce - the art to manage crisis"), the topic of "resilience", a psychological resistance that connects us with each other and with the public as well.
We come from Köpenick, Spain, Syria, Iran, Switzerland, Egypt and Saxony and confront each other in a personal and creative way with the cultural contradictions and views that are discussed in everyday life and in the media.
In 2019, we will address the issue of gender, religion and sexuality and address the question of how and whether men and women can (or do) deal with the current challenges of everyday life and associated role models.
Are you adaptable, resilient, attentive, efficient and clever?
Are you more of the vulnerable type, who displaces problems or are you avoiding confrontations altogether? How do you pay attention to your mental health?
In a humorous and dramatic way, the Ensemble der Zerstreuten questions why some people are more resilient than others and what the secret behind a healthy self-confidence is. There is no universal solution, but different perspectives from different cultures. The common search for the key to resilience is accompanied by live music.
