Theater & Performance / City

For the 10-year anniversary of the Gängeviertel, Ligna kidnaps participants with a performative audio walk about the recesses of Hamburg history.

Hamburg is a city without memory. Except for the Gängeviertel, a historical neighborhood of alleyways that was occupied in 2009, almost all buildings in the city center older than 150 years have been torn down. To this day, in places like the former Gestapo headquarters at the Stadthausbrücke, the voices of the persecuted and murdered are secondary, and instead have had to make room for the construction of yet another shopping arcade.

LIGNA invites participants into this strange, sinister corner of Hamburg’s past. The participants, who have been outfitted with headphones, visit destroyed synagogues that have no plaques to mark their location. They bring demolished, communist alleys back to life, and question contemporary urban development. To mark the 10-year anniversary of the Gängeviertel, LIGNA expands its practice: without a permanent center, it unpredictably and unexpectedly occupies some spaces and opens up others, not only saving the past, but also updating it.
