Covid 19 and Live-Stream
Also our performances and tours are cancelled due to Covid-19. What this will mean for our work is not predictable yet. We can only hope that live performances will possible again soon.
After the cancellation of shows in Potsdam and Aarau, we have the possibility to do a Live-stream of "Krabat" at Westfluegel Leipzig with the support of Streamio Leipzig. A ghost performance in two ways: not only the audience is missing but also our two colleagues of Grupa Coincidentia who are not able to leave Poland.
This initiative points to the precarious situation of freelance artists:

Things on Strings
POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19!
Workshop at Westflügel Leipzig from 30.03. to 01.04.2020.
The figure on the string will be researched in this workshop, starting with simple constructions, always with a view to the theatrical impression. Movement and construction are entwined, workshop and stage become one. The material can be light or heavy, small or big, shaped or unformed - the goal is always to find a coherent, authentic animation through strings.

New Production 2018
Staub - Dust - אבק is the title of our new production together with Ari Teperberg and Inbal Yomtovian of the Israeli group Golden Delicious. A theatre production which dissolves time and space, combines big bangs and black holes of personal and collective (his)story and dares to face the present.
