andcompany&Co. The & of history

Postdramatisches Theater in Portraits #3

Ed. Florian Malzacher. Berlin: Alexander Verlag, 2021.

In German language

From Lennon to Lenin, from Karl Marx to Karl May … With its plays overflowing with wordplay and peppered with pop quotes, the history- and history-obsessed collective andcompany&Co. has been bringing distinctive political theatre to the stage for over fifteen years: capitalism, communism, colonial guilt and politics of the day as a remix.

Volume 3 of the Postdramatic Portraits roams through the genesis of the collective and its particular artistic signature and way of working.

With an introductory essay by Florian Malzacher, an extensive conversation by Luise Meier with andcompany&Co., a contribution by Alexander Karschnia, original texts, numerous colour illustrations and a complete catalogue raisonné.

The series Postdramatic Theatre in Portraits is dedicated to the development of a new theatre aesthetic since the 1990s. The history of actors of postdramatic theatre in the German-speaking world is told for the first time in the form of monographs. The editors of the series are Florian Malzacher, Aenne Quiñones and Kathrin Tiedemann.
