U like? Here are some more posters and cards – Advice to Sink in Slowly.


With all the talk about the end of print during this past year, let us make one observation: print is not dying, it’s simply shifting – in fact, independent magazines are flourishing.

Speaking of dance, we were fortunate enough to assist the dress rehearsal of the new piece Wound by Berlin-based Cie. Toula Limnaios, for some research into the next collection of mono.gramm. As all works conceived by the Greek/Belgian choreographer, Wound is an intense and rather unsettling experience, consisting of fragments of dreams, memories and nightmares. [...]


DORKYPARK’s newest production Oedipus Rex will premiere in Dresden this Thursday, November 19. Igor Strawinsky’s “opera-oratorio after Sophocles” is mise-en-scène at Festspielhaus Hellerau by Argentinean choreographer Constanza Macras, the set is designed by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota. The productions by DORKYPARK are hard to describe with words: expect opera singers, dancers, a choir, a full [...]
