She She Pop

She She Pop is a performance collective that was founded in the 90s at the Giessen Institute for Applied Theatre Studies. Its members are Sebastian Bark, Johanna Freiburg, Fanni Halmburger, Lisa Lucassen, Mieke Matzke, Ilia Papatheodorou and Berit Stumpf. Their creative producer is Elke Weber. The members of the group are predominantly women and they work as a collective. The performers see themselves as authors, dramaturges and practitioners of their stage art. The inclusion of their own autobiographies is above all the method and not the purpose of their work. The result is a form of theatre firmly committed to experimentation. The stage is always a place of intense publicness. Here, decisions are made, ways of speaking and social systems are tested, and speech gestures and social rituals are tried, rehearsed or discarded. She She Pop sees its task as a search to find the social limits of communication – and to go beyond the protective space of the theatre, in both specific and artistic terms. The theatre is turned into a space for utopian communication. The audience, too, is often given a tangible attribution and a special feature: all of She She Pop’s works are experiments or demonstrations in some way, which would be invalid without spectators. In 2010 they received the Wild Card award at Favoriten Festival, in 2011 they were also given an award by the Goethe Institute at Festival Impulse. In 2011 they premiered “7 Schwestern”, one year later other two premieres took place: “She She P. ist die Marquise von O.” Along with “Ende”, their most recent pieces were “Schubladen” and “Frühlingsopfer”, which premiered at HAU Hebbel am Ufer. The two last productions are regularly repeated at HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
