No one’s coming, everyone’s going! On July 24, 2020, an enormous festival will take place in Berlin where a stunning number of independent artists and culture makers working in all disciplines will take part – by not showing up. During the coronavirus pandemic, many freelance artists and culture makers have been unable to earn money and pay their living costs. This is why we’re turning to you: Show your solidarity! Buy a ticket for Berlin’s (non) event of the year and don’t show up!

          Hermann Heisig Slap/stick


          2013 February 14 15 16 17 | 20.00

          Suitable for Non-German Speakers

          Get ready, take a run at it and completely fail – with the help of various comedians’ gestures and made up Brazilian dances, Hermann Heisig dedicates SLAP/STICK to the physicality of absent-mindedness, exaggeration and mechanical movements. A solo about the vastness of space, and the constant denial of efficiency. Coercion as the motor of a journey through non-sense, naivety and ecstasy.
