›ARENA ARCTICA‹ is a proposal by choreographer Ben J. Riepe and his company to open up possibilities for immersive multi-sensory experiences by occupying and reframing space. The three-day intervention gets underway with an experiential choreographed dinner served by the ensemble on the main stage. At the centre of the encounter on Friday and Saturday is a walk-through room installation framing a variety of performances and interventions from and with special guests from the fields of the arts, sciences and popular culture such as singer-songwriter duo Sea&Air, physician Uwe Schallenberg and Austrian dancer, performer and author Robert Steijn.
