DEAR FRIEND OF EURYDIKE, 

 

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS EURYDIKE WILL UNFORTUNATELY NOT BE ABLE TO OPEN THE FESTIVAL INBETWEEN AT SCHAUSPIEL DORTMUND IN APRIL 2020. WE ARE ALREADY LOOKING FOR AN ALTERNATIVE DATE AND WILL INFORM YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 
FOR HANDLING OF ALREADY PURCHASED TICKETS FOR EURYDIKE PLEASE CONTACT THE THEATER DORTMUND DIRECTLY. 

 

EVELYN HRIBERŠEK - CREATOR OF IMMERSIVE BORDERLINE EXPERIENCES AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF EURYDIKE - DEEPLY REGRETS THE CURRENT SITUATION. SHE LIKES TO COMMENT ON THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION WITH THE FOLLOWING WORDS: 

 

"WHEN FICTION BECOMES REALITY AND EUPHORIA BECOMES DYSTOPIA, THEN WE ARE IN A STRONG TURMOIL - PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. WHEN I CREATE SUCH SCENARIOS IN AN ARTISTIC CONTEXT, I DO SO WITH THE GREATEST POSSIBLE CAUTION AND WITHIN A CLEARLY DEFINED FRAMEWORK, WHILE STILL LEAVING ENOUGH FREEDOM FOR THE INDIVIDUAL. THE VISITORS OF MY WORLDS RESPECT THIS OPEN INVITATION AND MOSTLY TREAT THEMSELVES AND THE ARTIFICIALLY CREATED ENVIRONMENT WITH CARE.

 

HOWEVER, THERE ARE ALWAYS OUTLIERS: THOSE WHO, DESPITE WARNINGS AND RULES, THINK THEY HAVE TO FATHOM ANY REASONABLE-RATIONAL OR PHYSICAL-MENTAL BOUNDARIES - SITUATIONS WHERE PLAY INSTINCT AND MALICIOUS INTENT CAN HARDLY BE DISTINGUISHED. IF YOU EXPOSE PEOPLE TO AN EXTRAORDINARY SITUATION AND THEY ARE NEITHER UNDER OBSERVATION NOR CONTROL, THEN THEIR TRUE FACE OFTEN SHOWS ITSELF. 

 

IF WE LOOK AT CORONA IN GERMANY, IT SEEMS THAT THE JOY OF EXPERIMENTATION OF THE PEOPLE IS STILL GREATER THAN THE CONCERN TO GO TOO FAR ETHICALLY AND PHYSICALLY. HOWEVER, IN SUCH A MOMENT WE DECIDE NOT ONLY FOR OURSELVES, BUT ALSO FOR ALL THE OTHERS. 

 

WE CAN ALL STILL HELP TO GET THIS EXCEPTIONAL SITUATION UNDER CONTROL AGAIN THROUGH OUR VOLUNTARY, POSITIVE ACTIONS. MAYBE A COMPARISON OF THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH A SERIOUS SOCIAL GAME HELPS TO UNDERSTAND: IT'S TRUELY ABOUT OVERCOMING ONE'S OWN WEAKNESSES AND NOT EXPLOITING THOSE OF OTHERS."

 

EURYDIKE THEREFORE APPEALS TO THE HUMAN BEINGS OUT THERE:

>>> STAY CALM. STAY HEALTHY. AND ABOVE ALL: STAY AT HOME. <<<

>>> OUR TRUE FACE SHOWS ITSELF IN DARK TIMES: DON‘T MAKE IT SHINE. <<< 

THE IMMERSIVE BOARDERLINE EXPERIENCE EURYDIKE HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE WELTENBAUER.AWARD 2019.

THE PRIZE HONOURS THE INNOVATIVE USE OF SCENOGRAPHIC-TECHNICAL MEANS AT LIVE EVENTS.

THE JURY PRAISES EURYDIKE AS AN EXTRAORDINARY WORLD AT THE INTERFACE OF REALITY AND VIRTUALITY, THAT LEAVES "SCRATCHES IN THE MINDS AND HEARTS" OF ITS VISITORS.
