Stall 6, the foyer bar of the Gessnerallee, has existed for about 10 years. With the start of the new season, we would like to establish this space, which has so far run quite independently of the theatre programme, as one of the stages of the Gessnerallee. Stall 6 has changed not only programmatically but also visually over the summer. With the restructuring of Stall 6, the most public space of the theatre, the foyer, will become more the focus of the Gessnerallee's content - the space where the audience is welcomed. The bar is open from Wed-Sat from 17-23h and during performances one hour before the performance starts. The bar is closed during the company holidays from 18.7-17.8.
Goodnight Nature is currently on view at Stall 6, a collaboration between local artists Sarah Burger (Link to Website) (*1982, lives in Zürich) and Maya Rochat (Link to Website) (*1985, lives in Lausanne). Goodnight Nature deals with the nightly aspects of nature, with her and our magic at play: chaotic origins, flowing lava and swamps, hidden landscapes under sea levels and the slow yet persistent shifting of continental plates before and after eruption. This site-specific installation evokes the feeling of a protected tree trunk while in reality a storm is ravaging its crown.
