In motion, perspectives are perpetually changing –
even if they relate to on and the same object.

NOMAD-theatre is a permanent interim solution.
As such it is structured in a loose group of temporary
associations with an open spot for input, not stationary
and thus operating on flexible, modular theatrical projects
with transdisciplinary working methods and multisensual
techniques. Human presentation methods, acoustic and multimedia
techniques (media, video, film but also taste and smell
activating media) are components of the work
and medium of communication.

nomad.moves.2 - 245931.1
NOMAD-theatre is working on the development of contemporary
forms of communication and expression like transdisciplinary
projects in the performative and situationist as well as in the so
called theatrical context. Starting point of the work is thereby
the origination of temporary areas of action and structured
communication spaces.
Such communication spaces are in principle virtual and
are produced by means of different techniques in material,
architectonic and various medial surroundings. However,
communication and encounter in the physical world or
the activation to it is vital for this process. In this sense,
performances or theatrical works are temporary installations
of simultaneity.
Theatrical installations, performances are placed in specific contexts –
situations and public activities are staged, thereby putting t
he conceptual reality into perspective resp. activating to its
permanent recreation. The focus of this work is on longer-term,
process-oriented projects, developed in a laboratory environment
and placed in public in the form of several products that originated
out of this process.

NOMAD-theatre is conceived as a mobile module for
perception and communication of the world and its current
development to discontinuity and fragmentarisation.
In its growing multidimensional labyrinthic archive, the name
is subject and operating principle of nomadic research as well
as nomadic orientation and action strategies.

NOMAD-theatre was founded in 2000 by director Thomas J. Jelinek.
