Together with partners in culture, business and science, telekult develops cross media projects, which combine the medium film with various art forms, such as exhibitions, performances or presentations. Film can play an important and active role in these collaborations, bringing together the different elements like theater and music.
Additionally, telekult develops DVDs, which serve as an independent medium and document the event or the topic of the collaborations in more detail.
Musical / dance theatre drawing from both Anton Tschechows „Three sisters“ and motifs and texts from the lives of Nele Winkler, Juliana Götze and Rita Seredßus, three actresses who live with the Down’s Syndrome. Also participating: Angela Winkler, Tammo Winkler. Musicians: Ketan Bhatti, Milian Vogel, Hannah Klein, Andreas Voss, Matthias Engler.
It’s the unwritten epilogue that stretches the plot over the frame of the actual theatre piece. Nele Winkler, in her life off the stage, has recently moved out from her parents’ home – just as the character Mascha that she will be performing. Now she lives in a flat provided by a shared housing initiative – together with other actors who all have the same handicap: the Down Syndrom.
