When the background becomes the foreground becomes the background

The English word "noise" is derived from the Latin "nausea" meaning seasickness. In contemporary usage it usually applies to a disturbing or disruptive sound but it also has broader associations of dissent and quarrelsomeness. Noise is more than a purely acoustic phenomenon. It consists of layers of vibrations at varying volume, it is a sound made up of many sounds. It can include shouting slogans and people’s screams, the beating of pans with wooden spoons, of hands banging on walls or feet kicking bus shelters. We might also call these "rumblings".

+++ INFOS ABOUT COVID-19 +++

From June, 5th 2021 we will play live in front of an audience again. Our digital programme BO-STREAM will continue to run at a reduced rate. A test centre has been set up in the foyer of the Schauspielhaus where citizens of Bochum can be tested for Corona.

Are they sailing again? With Corona, the booming cruise ship industry also came to a temporary halt. Offshore hotels with seductive names like Coral Princess, Costa Diadema or MS Artania were suddenly potential viral hotspots, countries closed their ports and borders, and the liners cruised the seas homeless for weeks before being laid up to dry. But in the meantime, free Covid 19 tests are again being offered to unsettled customers: "Keep to yourself: All-round carefree - on board and ashore."

In the bound Prometheus, the power of conviction, the freedom of the will and the necessity of fate come together. Without any doubt, Prometheus stands up for his love of mankind, is not swayed by any state authority, is not persuaded by opportunists, does not evade any Zeusian threat and endures his fate (almost) without complaint. What is it that drives Prometheus? Director Anna Stiepani explores this question in her production of this multi-layered, stirring and impressively beautiful text.

After the cancelled tour in 2020 and after no gigs were possible for such a long time, the Tindersticks are finally coming to Bochum, but under slightly different circumstances: In 2022, the cult band around singer and mastermind Stuart Staples will celebrate their 30th anniversary!

+++ AUDIO PLAY BY MOURAD BAAIZ +++

"Glow in the Dark" is an audio play created in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement. We follow Mourad who, due to his suboptimal love life and lack of representation in films, lets his imagination run wild in a cinema with an overactive air-conditioner. His thoughts lead him to conclusions, but are they the right ones?
