From Saturday: “As in a straight line” – the collective production celebrates its premiere in Berlin

Wiebke is a Berliner and currently lives in the small English town of Todmorden. Before her, far and wide, only a green and rural existence. But everything will be completely different as soon as he comes to Berlin. The question he asks is “Where exactly do I belong?” “What does home mean?”

Actress Wiebke Acton is an integral part from 2019 Teams of the globe. Wiebke tells the story of a split between two worlds and a longing for Berlin. An emotional world that describes a state between fulfillment and disappointment, but also temptation and disgust.

Wiebke has lived in England and Germany for over 10 years and is an international actress and PhD student at the University of Leeds. The development of the piece “Like the crow flies ” is part of her research work on the relationship between acting and intercultural identity and emerges as international co-production between The globe in Berlin and Waterside Arts Center in Manchester.

But how was this piece made? What’s behind this story? And what can you expect on the Globe Berlin stage in “Like a crow flies“? Now let’s take a closer look at it.

Creation and origin of the piece

Wiebke Action is here long-term member in Teams of the globe and feels at home on the Open O’s stage at Globe Berlin. But Wiebke has mastered the balance between Berlin and England for years, commuting between the two places many times. 6 months here and 6 months there, sleep, but confusion at the same time. Wiebke is in her PhD in England and would like to take this opportunity Research work of a practical nature as it is not common practice in Germany. In England, undergraduates and postgraduates can complete their research work artistically – that’s exactly what he does with the Wiebke piece “How the Crow Flies”. Wiebke set herself the goal of using her passion for acting and creating her own piece for research work on cultural identity design. He has been asking himself for years “Who exactly am I?” and “Where do I belong?”

Wiebke is stuck between culture and everyday life. This is Leeds vs Berlin and English vs German. The feeling that some of us can recognize ourselves that has been with us in the next bits of our lives, and even a state that is yet to come.

Wiebke wanted this turbulent emotional world of her personal experiences in body and soul as a foundation for her joint development of the piece use. Wiebke is the source of the basic idea, her life is the content of the story, but the actress attaches great importance to the experience and knowledge of your fellow men, to benefit and bring this piece to life. In addition to acting, directing, musical accompaniment, composing and filming are equally important to being able to convey your story properly. Wiebke quickly knew who she wanted by her side and who would accompany her during her development.

Brainstorming and design began in October 2021. The first meetings took place at the beginning of this year through the well-known “Zoom”. The focus was on Wiebke personal stories and experiences. It was a lot of material collected, among them were very personal sourceslike the actress’s diaries. But apart from the story of her life, the most important part of the performance is music. Besides many autobiographical scenes music should be in the foreground. Songs – covers and specially written songs – serve as musical accompaniment to the song and are thematically related to it.

The audience will see many dialogues and scenes accompanied by music that will convey the story even better. Theme song “In this town I was at home “ was written by Wiebke and skilfully communicates the emotions of tear to the listener.

As the work is part of her research work, it will be presented not only in Berlin but also in Manchester. The Globe Ensemble will also perform on stage in Manchester and present the play in English.
