The eleventh edition of the politik im freien theater festival invites you to Frankfurt am Main. Under the ambiguous motto „Power" (German: Macht), 16 theater productions will be presented - accompanied by a broad discourse program.

Our two-day network meeting in Frankfurt am Main is part of this discourse program. We take a look at the ambiguity of the festival's leitmotif "power" and at the same time examine the creation and concentration of a very concrete form of violence and its modes of action: power & action.

With our network meeting we would like to introduce our produktionsbande network and connect local and supra-regional protagonists in our field, but above all we would like to initiate a conversation about individual experiences and observations of power (and its abuse) in the context of artistic production work - as organizers, strategists, administrators, care workers, producers.

In order to confront the concentration of power with a critical practice and the search for potentials of transformation, we will share observations and theses on the topic of hospitality and deal together with the very concrete form of hospitality riders.

The network meeting in the context of Politik im Freien Theater in Frankfurt am Main is conceived and organized by sofie luckhardt and accompanied by martin bien.

The network meeting is a two-day event from 01.10. - 02.10.2022. On both days the network meeting will take place from 11:00 - 16:00 at the Z - Zentrum für Proben & Forschung in Frankfurt's Gallusviertel (the Z is next to the Frankfurt LAB).

Of course, we would like participants to attend both days of our network meeting, but we do not presuppose this. If you can only attend one of the two days, please let us know in the comments field below.

The regional network meeting of produktionsbande is organized in cooperation with Independent Dance and Performance Frankfurt am Main e. V. It is co-produced by the festival Politik im Freien Theater.

Every three years, the Federal Agency for Civic Education/bpb hosts Politik im Freien Theater at changing locations, this year in cooperation with Schauspiel Frankfurt, Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm and Festival-AG, a network of the regional independent scene in Frankfurt, in which ID_Frankfurt e.V., laPROF Hessen e.V. (Landesverband Professionelle Freie Darstellende Künste Hessen) and the production house NAXOS are represented. The festival is supported and accompanied by the Department of Culture and Science of the City of Frankfurt am Main.
