The Swiss drama group PLASMA sees itself as a laboratory in which is searched for theatrical forms of expression. Since 2001 projects have thereby come into being, which distinguish themselves by an own mark and by their professional translation into action.
Plasma the group around the director and author Lukas Bangerter explores the borders between theatre, music and fine arts, and in this manner creates performances with a unique signature: densely layered and yet clear and reduced in its means.
The group has realised twelve projects to date since being founded by Lukas Bangerter and the actor Wowo Habdank in 2000. Zurich acts as the base for the creation of their work, from where they perform at performance venues and festivals in Switzerland and Europe.
From the start, a focus of PLASMA's work has been the attempt to free language from its sole function of transporting meaning, and to extend the comprehension thereof as an acoustic and musical phenomenon. The pieces of Lukas Bangerter are never linear treatises. They can be read both as living instillations or as scenic concerts, and always bear witness to the attempt to transform form into content, and content into form.
