The German-French-West African theatre/performance group Gintersdorfer/Klassen develop projects, in which they bring life strategies and forms of expression to the center and confront them with their own strategies and asthetics. Everything is, what it is. It's not about fiction or symbolism, neither on the text-, play- or material layer. They try to achieve a direct transport from life to theater and from theater/performance to life. Since its foundation in 2005 by Monika Gintersdorfer and Knut Klassen, the group has performed at theatres and festivals in Germany and Europe as well as in West Africa.
