Financed by the Arbeits- und Brückenstipendium of the Hessian Ministry of Culture, the actor and dancer Manuel Gaubatz and the actor and videographer Oliver Magda have taken up the topic of depression in connection with borderline and, as a further topic, loneliness in old age. Born out of the idea of giving a voice to these hushed-up topics, two powerful short films about life were created. The artist Jelena Markovic, will be present, as well as Manuel Gaubatz and Oliver Magda. Bianca Gaubatz, Manuel Gaubatz's twin sister and the source of inspiration for the first film "Life", will also be attending.

THE BOOK I WILL NEVER WRITE, D 2021, narrator: Sonja Fröhling (97 years), with Petar Sekulic and Manuel Gaubatz, conversations with residents of retirement home and statements by the grandmother of dancer Manuel Gaubatz about learning between the ages of 90 and 100 inspired this performance about old age, loneliness and the importance of small things.
LEBEN, D 2020 with Jelena Markovic + Manuel Gaubatz. When a teenager suffers from depression and borderline, family and friends are often helpless in the face of it. A diary served as the basis for the film. Made during the Corona Lockdown with the support of a bridge scholarship from the Hessian Cultural Foundation. The dance films reflect the themes of age, loneliness, depression and borderline. In the presence of the team! After each film there will be a small audience discussion with the participants.
