Juri&Joana

Hinaus ins Offene!

Das Wagnis in die neue Wirklichkeit

Yes, of course, things will remain difficult for another while. We will continue to be forced to a radically flexible working-style in 2021.

With „Juri&Joana. Hinaus ins Offene!“ we want to adress the current restrictions as a laboratory for new practices of live-performance. Instead of yet another move into the digital realm, we plan to return back into the citiy, into the open space and hopefully right into the heart of things happening.
