›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
