In March, imagetanz Festival is back at brut, with a diverse, three weeks long program presenting new artistic works in choreography and performance! Many exciting premieres and cooperations with local artists, outstanding international guest performances and an outreach program with studio visists, discussions, warm-ups and regulars' table is awaiting the audience! The artists invited this year propose alternative ties with the past and alternative strategies of staging it.
For their Performances for Pets, the artists Krõõt Juurak and Alex Bailey obtained a funding over 25.000 Euro by Shift (Programm zur Förderung innovativer Kunst). In their article dated from 26 January, Heute wonders whether it is a “great idea” or “totally exaggerated”. We think it is definitely GREAT!!! Last year, the two of them performed for our brut audience and their pets and aroused an enormous enthusiasm. Exceedingly positive feedback from the media as well as prestigious, international invitations speak for itself. Just a brief remark: Among others they are guests at Sophiensäle Berlin, Bristol Biennale, Kunstmuseum Ravensberg, Tapies Foundation Barcelona, Tanzquartier Wien or Merranine Porto. The editors of Heute also invited them in their studio in February 2016 to perform for their dogs Pauli und Angie.
