Solveig Hörter’s digital theater play (don‘t) ›Look at Me!‹ is about looking and being looked at. The focus is on ›Ole‹, that is, Solveig Hörter herself. In the past years, Ole has staged quite a bit, for example, in theater-pedagogical stage projects, in talk formats or also in Ole’s private kitchen. In (please don’t) ›Look at Me!‹, the gaze is reversed: Ole has once again met several of the people she staged, including 14-year-old Ebrahim Takavar, the choreographer Florentina Holzinger and the artist and refugee activist Reza Abbasi. Ole now lets them stage Ole. The result is a collection of stage directions performed live via Zoom.
Solveig Hörter studied theater education at the Hochschule für Künste im Sozialen Ottersberg and then did the master’s in applied theater studies in Gießen. Solveig Hörter works between theater education, art mediation and conceptual art, usually in heterogeneous group constellations and often with persons who are at first not professional theater-makers. Experimenting with unusual theater framings and hierarchies results in unpredictable aesthetic hybrids.
