Shilpa (Flinn Works)
Meet Shilpa, an attractive, interactive mobile phone app that has been projected to be the most popular app of 2017. Created using the latest technology, Shilpa will sing for you – in flesh. She will sing the songs you want to hear with her sugary voice. Best of all, she behaves exactly the way women are supposed to behave in the eyes of men - until the next update is released.
Starring singer-actress MD Pallavi, this one woman show is a witty, humorous and satirical interrogation of what it is like being a woman in the entertainment industry today. The Indo-German collaboration explores the realms of digital dramaturgy, repetition and user choices to create a hybrid form of theatre-meets-performance art.

The Sophiensæle is one of the most important locations for German-speaking independent art-production. Artists from Berlin, as well as the national and international theatre-scene are invited to produce and present their works here. They are selected on the basis of their artis-tic concepts, contents, and working schemes. The theatre is home to cultural discourse and a vast mix of artistic genres – from theatre, dance and music, to performance and visual art - which complement each other and enjoy a productive dialogue. Alongside many young artists searching for new theatrical languages and forms of expression, a number of established artists and companies have longstanding partnerships with the Sophiensæle.
