A Film project along the outskirts of Bremen

MON 12 - SUN 25 April

FRI 30 April Film premiere via Live stream
with live scoring (Information on access will be published here soon)

The theater collective Mobile Albania makes a Bremen film! In an anachronistic bus, they set off on a trip along the borders of Bremen—to Bremerhaven and back to the Neustadt again. On the outskirts of the city, they encounter residents with whom they walk a distance in pairs, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. What images can be seen there every day and which new ones do we discover? What does the city feel like from here? What do Borgfeld, Blockland, Weddewarden, Blumenthal, Tenever sound like and what perspectives can be found there? Do we go this way or that? The road movie takes detours and loses its way. And in a zigzag path portrays a city from its fringes.

How can you take part?
Individuals or households with a maximum of four persons are cordially invited to accompany Mobile Albania on a part of the way in short walks (approx. 1.5 hours). Where the walks start will be determined during the course of the trip—just keep an eye out for a blue bus.

Interested persons can also call Mobile Albania (+ 49 151-53301806 – available from April 9) and arrange a walk. The progress of the road movie can be followed via a Telegram channel. The link to the channel will be announced here shortly.

Who is Mobile Albania?
For more than ten years, the theater collective Mobile Albania has been practicing a form of theater dedicated to the encounter with different people in creative situations. Since 2009 Mobile Albania has been traveling the continent of speed in different vehicles: streets, cities and regions in Germany and Europe. Mobile Albania operates as an open collective with various artists, amateurs and all with whom they collide in cities and streets. In the past years, Mobile Albania has gained a lot of experience with different formats in a corona-compliant artistic practice (Der Apparat, Made Festival, Darmstadt, June 2020; Hoftheater, Frankfurt, March 2021).
