Sketches/Notebook

Sketches/Notebook is a performance experience bringing different art forms together in a ritual reformulating interdisciplinary forms of cooperation. Created during a residency at the Hau hebbel am Ufer Berlin, the project marks a new alliance for Stuart and her company. In real time, performers, visual artists and a musician share the space, their sensibilities and abilities to surround the audience with a vibrant world of light, music, objects and gestures. A series of rough sketches and intimate investigations are presented as an open field of actions reduced to their most essential features. Sketches /Notebook is a sacred playground that teases boundaries. Embrace the dark. Swing your arms. Change the weather.
