Brace yourselves for some soapification! ping pong split screen, the new participatory series by irreality.tv and Simon Oberhammer, will take place in the public space around brut nordwest. A mobile architecture made of bike trailers will unfold like ping-pong tables, where performer Otmar Wagner will invite you to play. But there is so much more that could happen here. The tabletop can become a film set, a dining table, a venue for half-fictional, half-real stories developed and staged on camera with the people in the neighbourhood. And as usual with irreality.tv, whoever wants to join can join.
The sporting highlight of ping pong split screen! A table tennis tournament in the courtyard of brut nordwest. And everyone can participate, no matter if you are an expert or a dilettante. With great sport, great prizes and spectacular fan choreos.
INFO: There will be teams of three, registration is possible as a team of three or as an individual. Please pre-register via the ticket link. If available, please bring your own table tennis bat, there are also bats available on site.
Moderated by Otmar Wagner.
When the weather is nice the ping pong tournament will take place in the courtyard of brut nordwest. In case of bad weather the event will be moved to the hall.
irreality.tv is a platform for site-specific, amateur TV projects. Its series are created in collaboration with people on location; everybody is welcome to join and work on the plot with irreality.tv. Projects are centred around the question: What should or could happen if life was a TV show? And sometimes it is – while filming, that is: a method described by irreality.tv as soapification.
Simon Oberhammer is an architect and sometimes set designer. For the irreality.tv series NIGHTWATCH he designed a secret sleeping architecture, for EXIT GHOST a congress centre populated by ghosts.
Otmar Wagner is a performance artist and amateur table tennis player, who has played important roles in former irreality.tv series, such as a resident of a guerrilla camp, the manager of Café Sandmann or a priest of paranormal phenomena.
