Thikwa is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary! It could be the right moment to reflect upon the long path traveled to get to where diverse theater is today. But we’re not going to that. We’re going to take on the future! Open air and as a theatrical journey through a green courtyard - an approach that can certainly be seen as programmatic. We are going to take on positions and move the figures on the societal chessboard! Reflectively, questioningly, humorously and as a way to think playfully around the corner. The loud megaphones will suddenly become quiet and poetic. What do I wish for the future beyond the slogans but which is still a strong statement? Perhaps something that can be sung together? And the phoenix dances with a new shine along with it. The more we live, the more we learn, the more we are able to clarify, the less we know. Or, to put it completely differently: how do you deal with the future when you can perform an inclusive guest performance on Mars? Can we visit other planets in search of advice or do we end up contaminating them with the expansive nature of the human spirit?

To take on the future, first we need a time machine, whispered Doc Brown, the oddball professor from Back to the Future. It would be nice to have in order to find out what time actually is. Do we like cooler in slow motion or is time lapse the new yoga trend? Maybe we could even stop time from the future or rewind it? A musical journey of discovery. Until the megaphones, both quiet and loud, remind us once again of the present.
Five performances by five choreographers, directors and musicians that Thikwa has worked with extensively over the years. Brought together into an eventful theater parkour. And 25 Thikwa performers, who make the cozy courtyard boil over with their ideas.

We are happy to celebrate the next 30 years with you.
Because of that we chose a special place to celebrate. The performances take place in the backyard of Expedition Metropolis, Ohlauer Straße 41, 10999 Berlin.
There are different possibilities to reach the location
Bus: M29, Ausstieg Ohlauer Straße (accessible)
Subway: U8 Schönleinstraße | U1/U3 Görlitzer Bahnhof (not accessible)
