Taboo Theater 2.0

What: Blog and Internet/Theater project

When: Online participation starts NOW; Theater project on location: May 19-24, 2008.

Where: Online and at Theater am Neumarkt in Zürich/Switzerland


Taboo Theater 2.0 is an Internet/Theater project by Ursula Endlicher, Ela Kagel and Anke Zimmermann, focusing on the question: How much taboo does art need?

Historically it seems that theater has always embraced topics regarding the breaking or rethinking of ethical values in its society. What will a theater-production face when inviting a global society with diverse approaches towards art, culture, and societal habits, to participate in it?

In the blog section of this piece we are inviting everyone to submit images, sound files, texts, videos or comments on taboos in art, theater, literature, or on the Web, which will then be part of a week-long theater production at Theater am Neumarkt/Chorgasse in Zürich from May 19-24, 2008. The Internet is our global stage and we are hoping that via the blog many different points of view will be conveyed, as they will co-determine the outcome of the piece. The structure and functionality of the blog will be translated onto the theater stage, where the collected content will be further worked on.
