For twelve years now, exceptional productions pushing the spatial boundaries and formal restrictions of a conventional theatre have been presented under the label ohnetitel
. Its characteristics include: a passionate interest in points of intersection between art and everyday life, with an instinct for "the stage" in public space; a dramatic language inspired by concepts and forms derived from the visual arts, dance, composition, literature and much more, thus operating on an interdisciplinary or non-disciplinary basis; exclusively "home-grown", each production in its own content-specific format. In its many productions and co-operations, ohnetitel always considers places and current events from scratch. In 2019, ohnetitel created for the "Sommerszene" a 24-part portrait of the town, entitled Eine Odyssee durch Salzburg
. The most recent production is the audio installation ingeborg bachmann. die single
with a 6-minute audio drama, record-player and zoetrope, designed for the Ingeborg Bachmann photo exhibition Rom, 1962
in the Salzburg Literaturhaus (March 2020). In 2012, ohnetitel was awarded the Prize for Cultural Work by the Province of Salzburg, and in 2018 the Cultural Fund Prize by the Town of Salzburg.
about ship fiction
This was developed by Dorit Ehlers in 2018 as a dramatic artistic concept, with the continuing theme of Schiffssehnsucht
[lit. "ship longing"] in various new ideas and public projects, consciously intermingling artistic formats and creative implementation resources. In 2018, Flaschenpostamt
[postal bottle service] was shown in the Summer Academy co-teachers' exhibition Shifting Point(s)
, in co-operation with the project space periscope. Since then, an analogue bottle-message exchange has been in operation between people from towns with and without harbours. On her own website, she publishes a weekly blog, as Schiffssehnsucht
researcher "Miss A. Ship".
