Das HOUSE – ReInventing the Real
About This Production
From the first months of the pandemic, the team of minus.eins, in co-operation with Schauspiel Dortmund and the Academy for Theatre and Digitality, have been researching purely digital, web-based theatre experiences in the virtual realm. “Das HOUSE – ReInventing the Real” unites the episodes “Das HOUSE 0.1” and “Das HOUSE 0.2” and invites viewers to an exclusive guided tour through an unusual web format. We will begin in Dortmund’s city centre, in the vicinity of Theater Dortmund. For the past two years, there has been a shutdown and all public life has come to a standstill. But there seems to be something going on at the theatre. Live music, a kind of opening event, all kinds of weird characters – and then there is the rumour that someone has been building an exact replica of the cathedral of Notre Dame on stage for years. What is happening in this digital interim world? What is already real, what is still virtual?
