> H E L LO GOODBYE
2022 is almost history and a new year is in the starting blocks. Reasons enough for the go plastic company to look back, to pause, but also an occasion to wish you all a good start into the new year. Into a 2023 in which all our paths will hopefully cross often.
Looking back, we can say that 2022 was a year full of special features in the now 10-year history of go plastic: we celebrated (almost throughout), with everything that goes with it (explicitly during our incredible company-festival time & s_pace), even if there were and are moments in between when we look stunned at world events, chaos and nonsense. Faint, confused, shaking our heads and sometimes quite discouraged. And how we then reflect on our possibilities and resources, create our own chaos, take other perspectives, create opportunities and spaces.
This resulted in numerous wonderful issues of Studio Lab, our new production mind the rage, the graphic novel for MOTEL VIBES as well as numerous performances of go plastic productions throughout 2022. We also spent times full of input in several residencies, meetings and workshops, were invited to numerous festivals in and outside of Germany, were able to expand the go plastic team in the PR area and also launched the KOMPLIZ:INNENSCHAFT together with TILL&LUBICH and the guts company.
The year 2022 was thus many things and partly everything at once: turbulent, decentralised, full, fast, enriching, frightening, familiar, new, wistful, exciting, angry, amazing, free, unequal, honest, hard, (un)patient, joyful, sad, perplexed, proud, reflected, stunned, happy and touching.
We are therefore all the more pleased to be able to announce that we have been included for the first time in the institutional funding of the state capital Dresden for 2023. You can read more about it here.
We also want to share with you the recap of our festival, for which we would like to thank ravir. With all these pictures we say goodbye, film off! and wish you a good start into the coming year 2023.
