»The Other America«: Reading Series at Werkraum Schöpflin


The third Wintergäste Reloaded season runs from 7th January to 4th February 2018 and this year is entitled »The Other America« and is a selection of staged readings of US American literature. The readings will be held in the Schöpflin Foundation’s cultural and debating venue, the »Werkraum«, in Lörrach; in the Druckereihalle venue at Ackermannshof in Basel; and in the Reithalle on the Wenkenhof estate in Riehen. A remarkable ensemble of fourteen outstanding actors will present a selection of works by Philip Roth, Don DeLillo, George Saunders, Toni Morrison and Arthur Miller. The pieces have been devised and produced by Marion Schmidt-Kumke as staged readings. 

There will also be a reading from Emma Cline’s »The Girls«, devised and performed by the Basel-based duo, MESH, featuring Emilia Haag and Sibylle Mumenthaler. These two young playwrights were given carte blanche by the »Wintergäste Reloaded« team to devise the work.
