How do religion and the church shape the way we live? Have we emancipated ourselves from the Vatican's centuries-oldvalues in our ideas of society, family, and relationships? What could a Family look like in 2016?


A group including members of the Schauspielhaus Wien's ensemble and young performers that writer and director Falk Richter and choreographer Nir de Volff met in two workshop phases as part of the Biennale di Venezia engages in an intensive examination of questions of belonging, identity and cultural heritage. Text and dance meet in search of stories that are written in the individual body of the performer and form the starting point for choreographies of movement. Working at genre borders and investigating interrelations between artistic disciplines distinguishes the approach of Falk Richter and Nir de Volff, the intensive study of their performers' biographies, phyisical impulses from sociology and philosophy flows into Città del Vaticano.
