Meet the artist
30.8.2017 I 5 pm I 5 €
With the 3rd Festival, we are launching a new format which is focussing on the artist as a person.
With Meet-the-Artist, we create a moment where the artists can present themselves. We want to break the classic artist - spectator relationship and open up new perspectives and possibilities of exchange. In an intimate and protected environment, the artists can present their work, explain background stories and thoughts, or attempt to convey their artistic idea in a new way.
We invite a company to create this moment without restrictions. As a festival we want to offer the place and the framework, but do not decide about the ultimate how and what. Whether as a LAB, a discussion or a presentation, the artists are free to present their work and take us as a spectator on this journey.
A 30-40 minute TedTalk, the inspiring bar conversation with an unknown person or the view through the keyhole into another world. We are just as excited as you are.
This year we are pleased to welcome Roxana Küwen:
Roxana Küwen has been busy since her youth in various circus areas. Specializing in foot juggling and static trapeze, she works solo, in a duo and in collectives. From the Cirque du Soleil events to dance festivals, from "traditional" circus to the alternative squat variety: the diversity of their audience is a decisive factor in her artistic work. For "it is the art that makes the world more important than the art itself".
TICKETS are limited and can be purchased at the box office. A telephone line for reservations is open from 18.08.17.
