Frankfurt LAB e. V.,
Schmidtstraße 12, D - 60326Frankfurt am Main
Four international artists (teams) have been invited to work in Frankfurt for one month as part of the Frankfurt LAB residency program in cooperation with the KfW Stiftung. At the end of the residency, the artists will open the doors to the rehearsal rooms to share their work with you and to engage in a creative exchange.
In "Gnathost-o-mata," interdisciplinary performance artist Carla Tapparo from Argentina combines mix-culture, such as raves and dj-ing, with narrative techniques to create new meanings and experiences. She is interested in the relationship between the individual and the collective body. Dancers and choreographers Emmanuel Ndefo and Femi Adebajo from Nigeria are also concerned with bodies. In "Traces of Ecstasy" they examine male vulnerabilities and intimacy. Dancer and choreographer Stephanie Kayal has teamed up with musician and composer Abed Kobeissy to take revenge on the physical and psychological injuries of recent years in Lebanon as a sci-fi anti-heroine in "Galactic Crush." The feminist theater collective led by director Manjari Kaul from India will further develop "Firefly Women." The play is based on the letters of two women from the prison where they are imprisoned due to draconian legislation from the colonial era.
