The latest co-production!
Premiere: 31. March 2022 // Wilhelma Theater, Stuttgart
It’s over. Over and done with. The decay of humanity, the remnants of humanity, the remnants of an age are bundled into a museum. The human body as it was, wanted to be and never has been. 2 dancers, 6 puppeteers and 2 musicians create a vision of the future and a memory at the same time. For the third and last production of our trilogy ›Der Fall Mensch‹ (The Case of Man) we are cooperating with the figure theatre course at the Stuttgart University of Performing Arts and Music. It will premiere at the Wilhelma Theatre on 31 March 2022.
The latest backsteinhaus production!
Premiere: 24. February 2022 // Theater Rampe, Stuttgart
›Climax‹ is the second piece in the series ›Der Fall Mensch‹ (The Case of Man). After ›Show down‹, this time guest choreographer Miroslav Kochanek (B/CZ) deals with the Anthropocene. Dancer Tegest Pecht-Guido (NL) explores transitions: the waning, the withering, the aging. And says goodbye to the end of this gloomy human age. The third part of the series ›Happy ending‹ will premiere at the Wilhelma Theater on March 31, 2022.
We are invited to some festivals and guest performances!

›Show down‹ is a solo for a human prototype and an entire ensemble’s collection of stories of our origin, newly narrating and retelling the story of incarnation. The ensemble dives into our past, learns and hides, searches for traces, imitates, dances, and invites you on a special ancestral path. And thus prepares the next forward role into another future.

We are continuously tracked, screened and analyzed, scanned for usable data. In this performance by backsteinhaus produktion, three performers anticipate the omnipresent data collection mania in digital space. They make their private data and intimate details public, transparent. They exhibit everything that makes them stand out. Taking their shirts off their backs.
In ›Cocooning / kəˈkuːnɪŋ /‹ the virus brings its sweet gift to the cellar, where a kidney is doing its lonely hard work until then. In the bathroom a lung is barely able to breathe and in the living-room a uterus is always ready to receive. The heart beats everywhere and swells with the rhythm of a resuscitation. From room to room and from organ to organ, the virus pushes open doors and also the circulation.
