New residency programme uniting five performing artists from Africa and Europe in Spring 2020 in Athens. See details here. Application deadline 24 January 2020.


A performance, produced by Brain Store Project, Sofia and MS Schrittmacher, Berlin

If you want a better life you must live a better life.
In the Bulgarian-German co-production A Better Life, the three choreographers and performers Iva Sveshtarova, Willy Prager and Martin Stiefermann ask what we would have to do to achieve it and explore the topic of constant mobility and inconstancy. The performance is based on the research project was focusing on German senior citizens living in old-age poverty going to Bulgaria and young Bulgarians coming to Germany to work in the medical and health care sector. What does ‚a better life‘ even mean today? When are we ready to trade social capital against material capital?
