Kai Pfeiffer, excerpt from the drawn theatre critique Dionysos Stadt – Erinnerungen an eine Inszenierung, published May 2019 at

When we speak of the relationship between images and text, the comic as medium inevitably comes into focus. In linguistic-graphic communication, we want to explore the extent to which the various techniques of the comic can be suitable for application in other text-image relationships. First and foremost, this concerns questions of documentation and information transfer: what can texts express; what can pictures tell us; what can the two convey together? What messages arise when these two media join forces?
In terms of form, we would like to dare an experiment: we do not wish to simply discuss the relationship between linguistic and visual codes. Rather, we will attempt to perform the discourse itself by means of speaking, writing, drawing and charting.
