Katharina Schenk from Berlin and Peter Cant from London met at the GOGOLFEST in Kiev last year, where they spent two weeks working with Ukrainian actors as part of anETC residency.
The results were so encouraging that Katharina and Peter decided to carry on the work. They created an international theatre-residency this summer at Schloss Freudenberg in Wiesbaden, joined by six Ukrainian actors. In September the troupe were invited to perform at the 10th anniversary edition of GOGOLFEST. In an abandoned factory floor, high above Kiev, they created a performance full of poetry and suspense, If You Can’t Find a Partner Use a Wooden Chair.
Now the work is continuing in Berlin. Three actors from the Ukrainian troupe received 4-week working scholarship grants from the ETC to develop a new performance with Schenk & Cant, under the enigmatic title I Tell You We Must Die.
