In "21st Century Hauntings", STERNA | PAU explore the past, present and future of hauntings and our immaterial entanglements in technology and cosmology. As part of the Interventionen: Im Bad Berg, they will explore a variety of prediction methods, whether by looking at the constellations of the stars or analysing blockchain data. But what makes a prediction reliable and what role does trust play in this process?

STERNA | PAU take a close look at the common stereotypes of fortune tellers, analysing and questioning them in order to understand why we feel such an urgent need to take a look into the future. The audience is cordially invited to embark on a joint voyage of discovery into the uncertainties of the future and to play with numbers and stars in the process.

STERNA | PAU is a theater group from Bochum, Dortmund, and Berlin that has been producing theater and performances for youth and adult audiences since 2017. The artists work on topics such as queer feminism, digitalization, sexuality, coexistence, and DIY. In their working processes, they like to involve their youthful audience. On a structural level, they strive to shape the working processes with an awareness of (self-)exploitation, discrimination, neurodivergences, and mental health. Productions by STERNA | PAU have been invited to WESTWIND Festival, FAVORITEN Festival, and Szene Machen! Festival, among others. From 2022-2023, they are part of the Freischwimmen network, and since 2023, they have received conceptual support from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The core team, consisting of Maren Becker, Laura Pföhler, Yasmin Fahbod, and Jolanda Uhlig, is expanded with artists from the network in various projects.


The show takes place in the gymnastics room of the Mineralbad Berg. Spectators are requested to enter the room barefoot, on socks or in indoor trainers. If you would like to use the pool afterwards, please bring swimwear.
