For many years now, plays by Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft have drawn on questions shared and discussed with other artists and rehearsing guests of all ages. After questions like, "What are you not asked enough?" followed by, "What do you stand up for?", Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft now collects answers to, "What do you need the others for?"

It began with the interest in asking who owns the stage, who gets there, how to share it, what to negotiate together there. The plan was to have many others come there to share space, time, and interests. The many people in one place thing has become more and more unnecessary in the last months and still does. Three remain: they share the stage, as well as a walk-in object, they call it a house. In it they reorient themselves and change the terminology: In relation to theater, to themselves as a we, to what they do, to audience. WE CALL IT A HOUSE, for example, has only one audience member – they call her a camera. The three say what they do in the house is not film, but they call it film because it is not a play.

What they do is confront each other: Who am I in the context of the others and what do they say about it? They experiment on each other and have a lot of time, because so far no one has asked them to come out again, and as long as that is the case, the three of them negotiate what they will later debate with many others. The question does not expire, on the contrary, it arises anew every day. Now more than ever.
