Die Siedler von Süd-Wien

A theatrical urban play by Play:Vienna in cooperation with WERK X, funded by SHIFT III.

All of a sudden everyone is talking about the „right to the city“, which is increasingly threatening to degenerate into a lucrative speculative property with outsourced tenements. Between rising rents and increasingly scarce living space, people are too often forgotten: it is they who give a face to all the new and old housing complex in a city. Some of these complexes reach the size of independent small towns and create a “city within a city”.

In the playful city project „The Settlers of South- Vienna“, play: vienna explores the question of what the concept of „Siedlung“ means – and could mean – for its residents and urban coexistence. In the three large South Vienna housing complexes Kabelwerk, Am Schöpfwerk and Alterlaa, we will host an interactive weekend that takes participants on a tour through all three communities.
