THINGS THING - do you know what that is? THING?! Is thing one thing? Or is thing several things? What things are there around us at all and what all can be done with things? And what can things do with us? Can things actually think and think thoughts?
With THINGS THING, Julia Keren Turbahn and Jan Rozman, together with Jan Kress, invite you into a crowded world of things. Is that your thing? Then be part of it: the playful performance leaves room for interpretation, discovery and encounter and invites everyone from the age of five and up to do things.
Julia Keren Turbahn studied media and cultural studies, then went to the University of South Whales in Sydney as a DAAD scholarship holder for dance studies and subsequently studied dance context and choreography at the HZT Berlin. Jan Rozman studied contemporary dance at the Arts Gymnasium in Ljubljana, choreography at SNDO in Amsterdam, and earned a master's degree in solo/dance/writing at HZT Berlin. In 2019 he received the danceWEB scholarship and the Ksenija Hribar-Promising Choreographer Award.
After all performances, there will be several follow-up conversations lasting a maximum of 90 minutes. The talks will be divided up on the spot. There is always a conversation in DGS (or with an interpreter) for this guest performance. In addition, there is always a talk in English (or with English interpretation) as well as spatially accessible offers. You can find information about the presenters here.
