Nelly Köster | Gelsenkirchen

Nelly Thea Köster arbeitet seit Jahren an der Schnittstelle zwischen Kunst und Gesellschaft. Ihre Motivation in der Arbeit mit Profis und Laien, speist sich immer wieder neu aus dem Interesse an der Umsetzung der „sozialen Plastik“ (J. Beuys). Der erweiterte Kunstbegriff geht davon aus, dass jeder Mensch „durch kreatives Handeln zum Wohl der Gemeinschaft beitragen und dadurch plastizierend auf die Gesellschaft einwirken kann“.
Die in der praktischen Arbeit gesammelten Erfahrungen der Veränderbarkeit von Gesellschaft durch das Zusammenkommen unterschiedlichster Menschen mit ihrer kreativen Energie, bewahrheiten sich für Nelly Köster immer wieder neu in ihrer Arbeit als Theatermacherin und Musikerin.
Studium der Theaterpädagogik und Kunstgeschichte an der FH-Osnabrück/Standort Lingen/Ems und an der Hogeschool voor de Künsten Arnheim, NL und der FH-Münster.

Gründung des Labels cantina publica, Projekte im Bereich Regie, Choreografie, Musik, Darstellung in Zusammenarbeit mit: u.a. Schauspielhaus Bochum,Trance Express,  dem fringe ensemble, den Städtische Bühnen Münster, Samir Akika/UNUSUAL SYMPTOMS.
