Property changes people: It grants power, separates, excludes and defines our coexistence. But it is also seems improper to talk about it. All the more reason for She She Pop to attend to the matter. Loosely based on Brecht’s poetics of learning plays, artists, local delegates and the audience form speaking chorus groups based on what they have and own. They articulate the divisive lines within the collective audience, e.g. whether someone is expecting to inherit. Who is allowed to speak? Who is present? Who is represented? “In short: A show that asks the right questions and refuses to accept glib answers.” – is how the jury justified its invitation to this year’s Theatertreffen.

She She Pop is a performance collective, founded in the 1990’s at the Gießen Institute for Applied Theater Studies. The members of the group are predominantly women and they work as a collective. The performers see themselves as authors, dramaturges and practitioners of their theatrical art. The inclusion of their own autobiographies is above all method and not the purpose of their work. The result is a form of theatre firmly committed to experimentation. The stage is always a place of intense publicness. The audience, too, is often given tangible attribution and specially featured: all of She She Pop’s works are in some way experiments or demonstrations that would be invalid without witnesses.
