The Physical Theatre Department at the Folkwang UdK and the Maschinenhaus Essen are partnering for the fourth time to host the FULL SPIN International Physical Theatre Festival from July 5-9, 2017 at the Maschinenhaus Essen. This festival is one-of-a-kind in Germany and this year will be particularly monumental, as it will coincide with the founding of the Physical Theatre Netzwerk, which will serve as a collective cultural-political voice for the physical theatre scene in NRW and beyond.
My fellow physical theatre students and I are very excited to be playing host this year to an inspiring group of international physical theatre artists for four fully packed days of theatre. You can see the full schedule HERE. Folks are coming in from far and wide: Beirut, London, Amsterdam, Seoul, Brussels . . .
For my part, I am most looking forward to seeing Lebensraum by Jakop Ahlbom at the Grillo Theater in Essen and Sabine Molenaar’s performance of That’s It at the Maschinenenhaus and to participating in workshops with Trygve Wakenshaw and with the Duda Paiva Company.
I will also be performing at the FULL SPIN OPEN SPACE on Sunday, July 9th. From 11:00am to 1:00pm in the Meierei on the Folkwang Campus in Essen-Werden we Folkwang students will perform selected devised scenes from the past three semesters and the acting students from the Chung Ang University in Seoul will be performing a 50 minute piece. There will also be readings of self-written work and food & beverage catering to round out the morning. The entrance is free!
Tickets are still available for the entire festival but space is limited. So if you’re in the area, reserve a spot today (email@example.com) and join us!
You can also follow the Festival on Facebook, Instagram (@fullspinfestival) and Twitter (@fullspin_essen). We will be posting live every day. (I'm managing the social media!)
