A communal oasis, a utopian island, a temporary autonomous zone – open daily and non-stop from 11 am – 12 pm! MAMAZA, our choreographer collective in residency, rings in the New Year by transforming the Mousonturm theatre space into an exotic community garden. The central protagonists of the four-day duration choreography are the innumerable potted plants of all species, sizes and forms. They all come from the private apartments and workspaces of Frankfurt citizens, who have donated their darlings for the run of the project. For this botanical general assembly, MAMAZA has created a unique choreographic biotope together with students of the Städelschule architecture class. Permanent rearrangement, mutating light and sound conditions and mood raising events throughout the entire day transform the Mousonturm stage into a gathering place for plants and people; a mobile, malleable free space, to be inhabited, shared and dreamed up together. You are welcome to bring a potted plant of your own with you as a loan. This saves you the cost of a ticket and allows you and your plant to become part of the Garden State.

Concept and Realization: MAMAZA (May Zarhy, Ioannis Mandafoundis, Fabrice Mazliah)  in collaboration with the SAC Architecture Class of the Städelschule * Sound: Johannes Helberger (kling klang klong) * Light design, technical direction: Harry Schulz * Body mattrasses: Heleno Bernardi * Co-production: Künstlerhaus Mousonturm * Funded by the Doppelpass Fund of the Federal Cultural Foundation.
