Kareth Schaffer has choreographed a conversation which brings together Berlin activists, politically engaged dance professionals and audience members alike, to discuss how the dance community and civil society can mutually support each other in their fight against the rise of the right. Methods of conflict transformation and playful rules ignite the discussion.

Her most recent works include a diptych about the tragic heroine Kassandra (Cassandra Has Turned 1 + 2, 2018), a fan fiction piece about Angela Merkel (Merkel Dances, 2019) and a comprehensive investigation of foley, the dubbing of sounds in film, as a choreographic tool (Unheard Of, 2016).
