Meet the artist

With the 3rd Festival, we have created this 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 opportunities 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 TED-like talk, a inspiring bar conversation with an unknown person or a view through the keyhole into another world. We are just as excited as you are.
Last year we were happy to welcome Roxana Küwen. This time she will be part of the short pieces with her piece "play nice". This year we're extremely happy to welcome Francesca Hyde:
Meet circus artist Francesca Hyde from company Collectif and then…
Most of the time Fran doesn't know what she is doing, this is one of her super powers. Improvisation & making-it-up-as-you-go-along are important parts of her practice. She's an advocate of contradictions, a lover of failure, a firm believer in exploring the complicated nature of things, and a believer in the souls of objects. She will probably talk about some of these things. She changes her mind a lot. She can often be found hanging from the hair. She looks forward to meeting you.
