Dear all,

I am looking for a choreographer for a video/performance piece based on ancient Greek tragedian Aeschylus's play „The Suppliants“. I would be especially happy to work with a BIPoC and/or queer person with or without refugee status.

(Fyi I am queer and white with no recent migration history in my family).

Shooting will hopefully take place in shut down Tegel Airport with dates beginning of 2021 (or tbd).

I will apply for funding for this project. As always, no one knows how much money will be acquired through that (or if any at all) but I will pay everyone else before I pay myself.

I have built the framework of the script myself in order to put it up for debate. I don't claim for it to be final and am happy for any input from anyone who will partake in the project. Furthermore the process is ideally a collective one. I will try my best to have everyone be heard and seen and represented in a way they feel comfortable with.

Please get in touch for further info.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi fellow dancers, students, artists....

I have a large flat near Uferstudios with a big room (more than 30sqm, fantastic floor) which I am renting out intermittently to visiting artists etc.

Its a very quiet and lovely space but not greatly suited to long-time sharing as the bathroom is behind my bedroom. However, there is another toilet with sink which would be entirely yours and showering just needs a bit of communication but has always worked fine.

If you have visiting collaborators, guest artists/lecturers etc which you need to house, I am very happy to help...

Best wishes

The program includes intensive practical training, lectures and discussions
with the theatre director and teacher Sergei Ostrenko
and the program of IUGTE Conference with performing arts academics and professionals from around the world!


The workshop program is focused on the Ostrenko brothers approach of performers’ training, relying on the Russian Theatre Tradition, as well as the newest experiments in performing arts. Performer's physicality in the methods of K.Stanislavsky, M.Chekhov, Vs.Meyerhold's Biomechanics, Tai-chi for performers, improvisation, movement directing and teaching. These are some of the elements uniquely transformed and combined in Ostrenko's teaching system to suit the needs of contemporary performers, directors, and teachers.

Participants will practically explore the performer's physicality as the principal creative instrument, the key to form and style an atmosphere and emotional palette in contemporary performance, stepping beyond the limits of normative text-based acting.

Liebe Alle,

ich schreibe Euch bezüglich des Projekts habitus. habitat., das ich gerade im Rahmen des Masterprogramms an der UdK entwickle. Ich bin Clara - Modedesignerin und Studentin in Berlin und im letzten Mastersemester. Den Abschluss werde ich im März 2021 absolvieren.

Hierfür bin ich auf der Suche nach Choreografen*innen, Tänzern*innen und Performern*innen, die Lust haben gemeinsam eine Performance zu entwickeln, denn:

Tanz bewegt. Er kann zutiefst kontrolliert sein oder ein greifbares Sinnbild maximaler Freiheit.

Tanzen ist rituell oder schlicht ein Gefühlsausdruck. Tanz ist aber vor allem ein Bindeglied, - zwischen Körper Raum, zwischen Musik und Muskeln, zwischen Mensch und Mensch.

Für weiterer Infos schaut hier vorbei:

Ich würde mich riesig freuen falls jemand Interesse hätte teilzunehmen (oder jemand jemanden kennt, der vielleicht teilnehmen würde). Falls es Rückfragen gibt bin ich jederzeit gerne per Email erreichbar oder für einen Austausch bei einem Kaffee zu haben: oder

Herzlichen Dank und liebe Grüße,

Hi everyone, I'm a young lighting designer looking for projects where I could do the lighting design for your show. I studied Lighting Design in Hildesheim (HAWK) and Lyon (ENSATT) and had already the chance to work with and accompany Lighting Designers like Emese Csornai, Ben Schälike, André Pronk and Jan Fedinger. Apart from doing assistances I'd like to join projects where I could collaborate and explore with you the possibilities of light for dance or theatre. You'll find more information about me here: I'd be happy to hear from you! Best, Vito
