HILDE

Either way, she and I

People react very differently when they learn that they have a life-threatening illness. Some continue to live as before, some go traveling, some become religious.
And some fulfill a long-cherished wish. Like our stage character, who takes her cancer as an opportunity to make an evening about Hildegard Knef, whom she admires. A ruthless evening, just the way she likes it.

Can Knef's glamor and her merciless view of herself rub off a touch of immortality on her own life? She had it, too. She called…

Blind Date East

Part 1 of the Europa trilogy

"Who should pay for it?"
For our spring production, we take a look at Europe, pack our bags and go on a journey.
In the beginning, the EU was a beautiful dream of equality and open borders. We were proud to be part of it and waved our red passports and blue flags. Big at last and no longer just Graz or Austria. Today, Europe has lost its luster. We are bored, sometimes embarrassed. It is divided. And - let's be honest - it's a bit unappealing.
But we want to give each other a chance. After all,…

MONTAG

The improvised show

After almost 30 years, the TiB players still don't know what this evening actually is. Even after hundreds of shows, thousands of stories and plays without a text, where we direct and rehearse live on stage, our desire to play remains unchecked. Inspired by suggestions from the audience, we create characters and invent stories that are spontaneous, unique and one-of-a-kind. This is how characters, stories and songs are created. A musician improvises the appropriate atmosphere.
The stage is empty,…

GAME OF DEATH

Impro Solo with Jacob Banigan

Taking inspiration from the audience and a deck of fortune-telling cards, Jacob Banigan evokes exotic settings, embodies diverse characters and hurtles through intriguing stories. But he is not totally in control; there are twists he cannot predict, elements are controlled by the audience, and the Egg Timer Of Death is always ticking...

GAME OF DEATH premiered in Graz in 2012, and the monthly show has been sold out ever since. Banigan has also performed the show in Vienna, London, Bristol, Toronto,…
