The Mutation project

MUTATION is a web- and theatre-project on Globalisation by Lubricat, Berlin, Germany. On this virtual space we open a dialog with collaborators all over the world, to develop a material base for performances in actual space. Material means all kind of texts and pictures reflecting personal, social, cultural or political experiences around the basic formula of the global shift: WORLD=CITY.

MUTATION has taken place in actual space (from September 2003- June 2004) with four unique performances and one video movie in five Cities on four continents: Lagos, Shanghai, Richmond, Buenos Aires and a final in Berlin.
