“Breaking the Spell” is an artistic project that reflects ways of being-with in contemporary performing arts. It creates diverse formats of encounters, reflects artistic practices that are deeply political and poetic at the same time and situates them in concrete environments. It thinks of a feminist perspective not as a theme, but as a very logic of work. And it's about embodied knowledge, which is invoked not only in the two (very different) projects titled “Body/Bodies of Knowledge”.

For 10 days, the Residenz is transformed into a container that 10 artists and thinkers from Europe enrich with their knowledge and experiences. On each of five evenings, two artists will present their work in the form of performances, performative lectures, moderated film screenings, conversations and a staged walk. The project is co-curated by Marta Keil (Warsaw/Utrecht) and will be continued at the Münchner Kammerspiele, at the Performing Arts Institute Warsaw and at the Kunstencentrum Vooruit in Ghent.
