Political aims and ideas, a critical view on war, and social criticism have rarely been formulated as precicely as Bertolt Brecht did in his writings. Nowadays, precise statements like a clear „Yes“, or a straightforward message are taboo; rather, they are substituted – and not only within the arts – by the term of „anything goes.“
The Beginning and Believing Cabaret Show, July 2006
After various performances (Variety Show 2003 at the 2nd Tirana Biennial in Albania; 2006 Cabaret Show for the abc-Festival in Augsburg) tonight, the ever expanding „Beginning and Believing Ensemble“ gathers once more, this time for a radio show, using radio as an apparatus of communication, or at least attempting to approach this postulation by Bert Brecht.
The group of artists and cultural workers focus on an emancipatory use of the media, referring to Hans Magnus Enzensberger’s idea in his "Baukasten zur Theorie der Medien" where the author suggests that every media consumer has the potential to be a producer, too!
As in all previous performances, the artists will once again operate in a vaudeville sense, arranging diverse micro-performances to design the radio show.
