Various Languages with English subtitles

state-theatre is a series of six experimental documentaries that explore urban conditions
for performance based on six case studies in Lagos, Tehran, Berlin, Detroit, Beirut and
Mönchengladbach. state-theatre departs from places that have shed their apparent
societal functions: deserted areas, construction sites, unused or reinterpreted buildings
– empty spaces in the urban fabric, places that were originally meant as allegoric
gathering places: theaters.
