Country: Germany | Language: German | Year Of Inception: 2021
The drama “The Seagull” written by Anton Chekhov in 1895 serves as a working basis and thematic guideline for the characters and the emotional tone of “möwe.live”. The core themes are loneliness, the longing for a meaningful life and the failure to communicate honestly with other people.
“möwe.live” brings Chekhov’s classic into the present day and blurs the boundaries between film and theater! you follow the play/the film about what the characters do on their pcs – with whom they chat, what kind of pictures they look at and what they leave unsaid. Always live performed, this play can be experienced from home on your own laptop. You buy a ticket and then you get a code with which you can join.
punktlive likes to open up the classic theater material “The Seagull” to target groups who have had little access to the world of theater and offer an alternative experience for experienced theater guests. With the means of film, theater and social media, they want to find new ways in the forms of representation and modern translations for topics that are valid over time.
You can get in Contact with the characters live during, before and after the play, via their social media- just give it a try, they will response:

“Theater is more than just analogue!
The digital reality of life, dealing with media and social networks, which has long since found its way into our everyday life, can also open up new narrative possibilities for the theatre.
punktlive’s stage is the publicly accessible space called “the internet”. This is where the characters live and they can be contacted via her social media!
punktlive believes that what distinguishes the theater from the film is the live moment. Experiencing and witnessing a emotion that arises in this very moment.
That’s why their performances can only be visited live (on the internet, accessible from anywhere) and are not available on demand.” -punktlive /Cosmea Spelleken
About punktlive /Cosmea Spelleken
punktlive merges social media with film and theater, searches for new narrative forms and ways to link them with (classic) material in terms of content. We are a collective that sees digital theater as a new and unique art form for which we need to find a new language.
punktlive is a young, independent group of theater and film professionals who came together in 2020 through working on “werther.live”, a native digital theater play, initiated by director Cosmea Spelleken. We live and work all over Germany and Austria and want to re-explore the narrative forms of film, theater, social media an everything in between!
