The theatre play Theatre of disgraceful people will be part of the International Congress in Berlin this year. The premiere of the play was held in Lübeck in November 2014 as part of the 50-year anniversary of the University of Lübeck and was well-received by the public. The piece is a production of the Agency for Surplus comprising a director (Hans-Jörg Kapp), a neurologist (Alexander Münchau) and a philosopher (Timo Ogrzal) who closely cooperate with professional actors and musicians. The play will have English subtitles.
The Theatre of disgraceful people focuses on people with Tourette Syndrome and various associated conditions including obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism.
The aim of the play is:
- To better understand the burden and stigma of patients with Tourette Syndrome and related disorders
- To re-consider current classification schemes for movement disorders and categorical approaches to biological phenomena
- To reflect the concepts and boundaries of medically defined normality
There will be a performance at 8:00 PM (20:00) on June 21, 22 and 23, 2016 at the Ballhaus Ost Theatre.
