Some of my latest work
 
A small «Making of Luftholen» in pictures from the creative process. Mastering the huge plastic bags required extensive testing and rehearsal.

Off the performance site I start with the words «Ich bau ein Haus für Nick und Klaus» (engl. I build a house for Nick and Klaus). I then enter and stretch a long piece of cord in the form of a house as in the drawing game and mind puzzle «Das ist das Haus vom Nikolaus» (engl. This is the house of Santa Claus) following the corners, edges and shadows. Once I have finished I leave and repeat my first sentence. I add a second line like in the extended version of the original play.
The ACT Festival usually takes place in public space. Due to the lockdown in 2020, it was held online and all performances were either streamed live or taped in advance to be presented at a specific date. For more information visit the ACT Website ︎︎︎ and the ACT 2.0 Archive ︎︎︎
