Thomas Bo Nilsson & Team present their second project at Schauspielhaus Vienna after „Cellar Door“. In spring 2016 they transformed the whole building in Porzellangasse into a walkable cosmos, a labyrinthian underworld of a provincial village. Complemented by a short film and an online presence that allowed various interactions with the performers, the „Cellar Door“ triptych sketched a disturbing panorama of a brutalized society for which the borders between reality and virtuality are blurred.
 
The theatre career of the Swedish architects and installation artist began in German language theatre with the poduction „Die Erscheinung der Martha Rubin“ at Schauspiel Cologne where he collaborated with the Danish performance collective SIGNA and got invited to Theatertreffen Berlin in 2008. Later on Nilsson was several times nominated as stage designer of the year by Theater Heute for his productions at Volksbühne Berlin and Salzburg Festival. Since 2013 he has been working as director together with stage designer Julian Wolf Eicke and his co-director Jens Lassak. In 2014 they developed their first internationally acclaimed first production „MEAT“ at Schaubühne Berlin. Unlike in his first excessive installation with more than 40 performers, Thomas Bo Nillsson chooses an intimate form for his second work at Schauspielhaus. With a group of five actors he is exploring a mysterious, claustrophobic net of dependencies, hatred and psychic decay. Once again he is exploring how interhuman exchange, the opportunity to communicate with others about one‘s life is transfered into virtuality and a scenery of isolation is created.
