Kathia von Roth is a Hamburg (D) based artist, activist and social engineer. Since her studies in theatre direction (graduated B.A. in 2013) she has been combining methods of theatrical play and performance with tools of analogue game design. In her work she is setting up physical and/or conceptional formats of temporary ‘utopian zones’ for collaborative creation, from immersive theatre spaces built on fictional storytelling to gamified working structures in the context of festivals, conferences and collective art work.
By designing playful guiding principles she is bypassing the fear of failing and a subservient uncertainty to act, always forcing the ‘spectators’ to interact with each other within the save environment of a game format. In this, she is creating realms of experience that cause alertness and a change of behaviour in its participants and can therefore take effect into so called ‘reality’.
In her work, Kathia von Roth is consulting a possible revolution, deeply believing in a post-competitive future.
