The week of action of PROJEKT THEATER, which organised a seven-day-long festival of solidarity in times of crisis for the autonomous theatre - scene, offers manifestos, readings, concerts, exhibitions up to installations and performances as well as roundtable-talks in the STUDIO, at different places in the crossing area Burggasse-Kirchengasse. and in the new room, the FLEISCHEREI (BUTCHERY). Participating national and international artists, combatants and followers of PROJEKT THEATER STUDIO demonstrated their solidarity with one of the few autonomous theatres in Vienna, whose existence was extremely threatened due to the „Theaterreform“, and protested against the threatened closure! A seven day explosion of creativity in times of crisis, infused by nostalgia, protest and zest for a restart.

Highlight was a symbolic moving-ritual into the FLEISCHEREI (BUTCHERY), the new quarter of PROJEKT THEATER STUDIO, which has to leave its previous home base following cutbacks in subsidies.
