Seven from Heaven

Hans Peter Trauschke

Educated in acting, directing and set-design I am working in theaters and arts since 1984. My artwork is based on storytelling and presenting mankind at its best; curious, humorous, surprising, loving, magical, supportive and laughing. During my student time at the Studiotheater in Munich where I studied with Gunnar Petersen and Martin Sperr and later in my own theaters where I worked with Miriam Goldschmidt which performed the “Happy Days” from Samuel Beckett directed by Peter Brook I’ve learned about a silence that only in theatre exists and in which a breath can unfold the power of a hurricane of laughters.

After 10 years daily in theaters and over 4500 performed plays, I moved 1994 from Munich to Dresden and conquered the public space with theatre and art. Here I produced my first theatrical sculpture, WÆNDE. Theatre as a closed room went in the background, sculpting and storytelling in public took over and directed me to the “Seven from Heaven” project which I started in 2005 with the first sketches and a 60ft tall model in Los Angeles. Myths around the world and unanswered questions of mankind leaded to the content of the project. Who are we? What lets us evolve in mind? What is the force behind creation? Which role plays the word and how did we humans interact before? Which role plays information for life and how does our brains receive informations? Henceforth the project was about the creation of a new creation myth based on scientific knowledge that leads us to a creative, laughing and loving society. A society that supports life in all forms and finds answers for the upcoming questions.

Seven from Heaven shall lead us to the source of creation and I’m convinced that these 7 Angels have the archaic answer. The laughter!
