"Games People Play: On the Attraction of Rules and the Instance of their Infringement"
An installation with over 100 experts

Licensee and Production:
Nationaltheater Mannheim / 15th International Schillertage

The 15th International Schillertage has chosen Schiller's definition of play as its theme. According to Schiller, "man only plays where he is man in the full acceptation of the term, and he is wholly man only where he plays." Playing seems to be a crucial element of being human. Humans play themselves into the world and they playfully acquire what exists there. Through playing, humanity has the chance to create a different, better world. We, the players, experience our freedom and our boundaries as well as the necessity of these boundaries. Without rules—which we create and set up ourselves—there is no playing. Play is the possible impossibility to merge amusement with seriousness, utopia with reality, and liberty with equality. Nevertheless, there is a great temptation to drop out of the play: we manipulate games, we break, ignore and dictate rules. As frauds or criminals, we demote our teammates to pawns. For reasons of creative despondency, for fear of the unexpected and loss of control, in order to make the world more calculable, we twist games into routine or ritual. Or, quite the contrary, we stop playing and leave our creative potentialities up to chance. In order to shirk responsibility, we seek salvation as gamblers and addicts.
