Gasteig, Celibidache-Forum


free Entrance


Our perception of cultures is marked and influenced by clichés. What looks Bavarian? What colors does Cape Town have? How does Singapore sound? Even the conception of different locations calls forth associations to images, patterns, colors, and sounds. The set designers Andrea Simeon and Blanka Rádóczy work with such associations and combine them in new ways. The festival center, a Bavarian Alpine hut, will become a location where visual clichés clash in a humorful manner, and the rustic atmosphere transforms into a colorful, vividly patterned potpourri beyond clear cultural attributions. And so a new location for get-togethers and exchanges is created in the front courtyard of the Gasteig Cultural Center, an inviting place to relax and unwind during the intervals between the performances, but also to engage in discussions, to reflect, and, of course, to enjoy the delicious food. In addition, the festival center functions as an event location for several sections of the CROSSING OCEANS program.


Blanka Rádóczy studied stage and film design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. She shot her first animated film for her graduate thesis film, and other films followed. After she graduated, she worked freelance for three years in the areas of set and costume design at, among others, Theater Osnabrück; Theater Heidelberg; Garage X in Vienna; and Kaserne Basel. She has been studying theater and music theater direction at the Theaterakademie August Everding under Sebastian Baumgarten since the summer semester of 2014. Her PHONE CALL TO HADES, a music theater project in public spaces, had its world premiere as part of the Munich Biennale 2016.

Andrea Simeon studied stage and film design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. After she graduated she worked as a set and costume design assistant at Volksbühne Berlin; Teatro Real Madrid; Staatstheater Stuttgart; Schauspielhaus Zürich; Opernhaus Zürich; and Schauspielhaus Graz; she worked as an assistant for, among others, Anna Viebrock. She was already designing sets and costumes on her own during and after her studies. She has collaborated closely with Simon Mayer (OH MAGIC; SONS OF SISSY; and MONKEYMIND) and Blanka Rádóczy (GOLEM SCHLÄFT; TEOREMA; and HAPPYLAND).
