The film for the performance Knotting was made as an experiment shortly before the premiere and documents in excerpts the research for the piece. The choreographic portrait is inspired by the fluid, elastic, expansive movements of the dancer Francesca d'Ath, who physically engages with the form of the knot.

FEBRUARY 20 | 19.00 PM | Premiere
FEBRUARY 21 – MARCH 06

In Figured and Flush, Sheena McGrandles explores radical temporality. With great attention to detail, Figured exposes the absurdity and artificiality of everyday gestures. Flush, following Gertrude Stein, breaks down linear and traditional forms of storytelling-perhaps even evoking a new lesbian temporality and aesthetic.

          Festsaal

          Auf Deutsch - in German

          The ladies show up every two months at nine in the evening. Crisis is their cultural capital, and they celebrate it until it achieves a cult status. Comedy as an autobiographical excess, overproduction of worthless facts and taking hostage of despair – all this is stirred and shaken, exploited and used, and at the end there are sandwiches!

          Vanessa Stern invites women to examine the comedic value of their crises in front of a live audience. An experimental evening that doubles as a bar!  

          featuring Lony Ackermann, Anika Baumann, Karla Nina Diedrich, Ursula Renneke, Maiden Monsters, Orit Nahmias, Bärbel Schwarz, Vanessa Stern, Laura Tratnik
