Monster Truck

The independent theatre collective Monster Truck was founded in 2005 at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen and currently consists of Marcel Bugiel, Manuel Gerst, Sahar Rahimi and Ina Vera. The group works in the fields of theatre/performance, scenic installation and video. Their works focus on the mechanisms of representation, the socially conscious and unconscious, repeatedly fundamentally questioning the role of the spectators. Their work includes productions such as Live Tonight!, Welcome to Germany, Genghis Khan, Sorry and Pinocchio. Her works have been invited to numerous festivals, including the Impulse Theater Festival, Radikal jung, Favoriten, Israel Festival, Donaufestival, Heidelberger Stückemarkt, Something Raw Festival in Amsterdam, the Okkupation Festival in Zurich and the CPH Stage in Copenhagen. Under the heading Irrsinn (madness), the group, in cooperation with the Schauspielhaus Bochum and the NTGent, is realising two productions and a project in public space over a period of two years. Marat / Sade in the season 2018/2019 is not only the first project of Monster Truck at Schauspielhaus Bochum, but generally their first production with a German municipal theatre ensemble.
