›Sketches/Notebook‹ is a performance experience bringing different art forms together in a ritual reformulating interdisciplinary forms of cooperation. Created during a residency  at the HAU Hebbel am Ufer Berlin, the project marks a new alliance for Stuart and her company.

In real time, performers, visual artists and a musician share the space, their sensibilities and abilities to surround the audience with a vibrant world of light, music, objects and gestures. A series  of rough sketches and intimate investigations are presented as an open field  of actions reduced to their most  essential features. Sketches /Notebook is a sacred playground that teases boundaries. Embrace the dark. Swing your arms. Change the weather.

›Sketches/Notebook‹ has toured around the world: this acclaimed production has already been seen in Beirut, Paris, Munich and Brussels.

Please note that due to a parallel event on the Zollverein grounds parking capacity is limited. We recommend you use public transport where possible.

»Meg Stuart is always a complete risk-taker. Her aesthetic is never predictable.« dorion Weickmann, TIP BERLIN

›Inside the Magic Cave: a short documentary about ‘Sketches/Notebook’‹ will be shown in the foyer after the performance.
