In its 8th edition this year, the NOW! Festival returns - 22 international performers from nine countries - dedicated to the art of improvisational drama. Not to be confused with comedy or theater sports, NOW! Festival artists do not rely on fast feel-good and laugh effects.
Their goal is to discover the unknown inside of spontaneous movement in space and dialogue with people, atmospheres and objects. Owing to the years of training body, voice and awak-ened mind, you can look forward to great, even touching theater moments, from these performers!
The five performance evenings gather under the theme of confidence, a frequently discussed problem of our time. The question is how far can the statements in social media or the press be trusted and is any such thing as truth?
Sten Rudstrom, Berlin-based American, developed this festival edition. Through his numerous solo and ensemble performances, Rudstrom is well known to the lovers of improvisation. He can be experienced in three performances with the well-known artists Martin Clausen (actor) and Ingo Reulecke (dancer).
