Krieg im Frieden 2

International Playwrights Laboratory

Part 2: Staged Reading by 
Ebru Nihan Celkan und Mehdi Moradpour


The borders between war and peace have become fragile. Wars are no longer declared, but simply waged. What is still a conflict, what is already a war? What is liberation, what is occupation? And what about the war within ourselves?
For over a year, four playwrights have grappled with the social conditions that make a free life a web of war in peace. Using a writing lab at the Literary Colloquium Berlin and exchange forums with civil society actors from Turkey, Israel and the Ukraine as a foundation, they investigate the role of art in times of upheaval.
In four staged readings in the Studio Я, the resulting texts are presented.

Two upheavals that consume a person at the same time, both strong enough to carry one away: a social movement that is breaking new ground, and a new love as well. When both movements begin with tenderness, but one ends in violence and terror, the other is also subjected to a seemingly endless ordeal. Author Ebru Nihan Celkan wanted to record the fact that everything had started with defending trees in Gezi Park, with a peaceful demonstration, with a party. And because the story changed daily before her eyes and with it her own life, she had to go along with a different story, with the uncontrollable – and thus also with a form that simultaneously recounts the here and now.

In the spring of 1815, a volcano erupts in Indonesia, causing the world's climate to cool. The advent of nativist-nationalist
thought also contributes to this darkening of the world, ideologically speaking. In 1819, the fi rst »right-wing« assassination in Germany took place, when Carl Ludwig Sand, a member of a Burschenschaft student association, stabbed poet August von Kotzebue. In Mehdi Moradpour's play, these old specters catch up with us, bigger than life, and only slightly shifted into the future: Over the course of a day in a metropolis we pursue the paths, thoughts and actions of a left-wing politician, an activist, a politically confused heckler and a humanoid radio host who no longer wants to be just voice. At a political gala, these differently armed protagonists fi nally encounter each other. And the humanoid comedy takes a course that also silences the otherwise omniscient chorus of bits of fluff.
