the next performance artist could be you in 2019


The atelier:performance series was developed, to create a space for performance art without borders. The studio of Ilka Theurich opens their doors for Live Art & Performance Artists who are travelling through Germany and passing Hannover - uncomplicated, easy and spontaneously. This series is based on the idea of sharing and as a laboratory for experiments.

The place is an art studio where Ilka Theurich works regularly with different materials. It is not a black box theatre. It is more a white cube, but not a clean white cube.
