How do you do? #5: Positioning

  • Icon eines Koffers

auawirleben invites eleven theater and dance professionals from different language regions in Switzerland to Bern under the header «How do you do?». In a six-day residence, they have the chance to deal intensively with a question which is important for their daily work. This year’s topic «Positioning» asks to what extent artists of today have to position themselves in their work – between dance and theater, between right and wrong, between autonomy and adaptation. How do you position yourself? Is it always possible and sensible to take a clear stance? And are such decisions helpful or do they create unnecessary boundaries?

Our invited artists are: Fhunyue Gao (Bern), Yvonne Harder (Geneva), Jony Valado (Geneva), Omar Ghayatt (Bern), Sara Koller (Bern), Wael Samy Elkholy (Oftringen), Johannes Dullin (Bern), Marion Duval (Geneva), Jan Bachmann (Basel), Marius Schaffter (Geneva), Jérôme Stünzi (Biel)
