Save the Date: Get-Together of the Industry 2016

Contemplating | Negotiating | Changing
From October 6 – 18, 2016 at the Heimathafen Neukölln and at the Neuköllner Oper.

Considering and negotiating the realties surrounding us describes one of the basic principles of creative work. Creating one’s own realities and keeping these alive for a limited time is the core of the performing arts.
The competencies of the performing arts allows us to become natural experts in these questions, which will be reflected in numerous formats during the Industry Get-Together.
