Writing in Response to 'Figures in a Landscape'
This event is part of A Season of Performance Writing, a series of practical writing workshops for everyone interested in writing, performance, and writing about performance. We invite you to join the dress rehearsal of an interdisciplinary project between fine arts and dance by Tanzcompagnie Rubato, followed by a writing workshop led by INTERNATIONAL NOTICE.
If you participate in A Season of Performance Writing, you will be invited to the dress rehearsals of five premieres across Berlin’s independent stages and spaces, ranging from dance to theater. After the show, lively writing exercises geared towards developing your skills, examining your ideas around performance, and writing from a fresh perspective will be facilitated. Sessions, held in English, are led by Richard Aslan and Louise Trueheart of INTERNATIONAL NOTICE whose joint experience encompasses performance making, choreography, writing, and editing. A Season of Performance Writing is brought to you by INTERNATIONAL NOTICE and THEATERSCOUTINGS BERLIN. INTERNATIONAL NOTICE is an artist-led project generating a constantly evolving archive of original and innovative critical writing in response to independent performance in Berlin.
Price for the season is 90 €, which includes the invitation to 5 performances and the writing workshops following each of them. An early-bird rate of 75 € is available until February 15th. (Prices are VAT inclusive.)

About the venue
The Gemäldegalerie boasts one of the world’s most important collections of European painting ranging from the 13th to 18th century. Masterpieces from all epochs in the history of art are on permanent display here, including paintings by Jan van Eyck, Pieter Bruegel, Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, and Jan Vermeer van Delft. The gallery is especially proud of its strong collection of German and Italian painting from the 13th to 16th century and painting from the Low Countries dating from the 15th to 17th century.
About the performance
Figures in a Landscape
A meditation on living painting and moving sculptures, a dialogue between visual art and dance, between European and Chinese culture. Only through body and costumes, in action and silence, a large, dynamic sculpture in continuous metamorphosis will be created - a corresponding, circling process of becoming and passing away.
About the Artist
Emotionality and formal rigour – Tanzcompagnie Rubato’s universe unfolds between these two poles. After almost 25 years of artistic practice, Jutta Hell and Dieter Baumann belong to the “doyen” of the independent German dance scene. Unimpressed by all short-lived trends, they continue on their own aesthetic paths. In contrast to younger colleagues, who mistrust movement as such and flee from all-too authentic emotions into irony, the two Rubatos display a seriousness and honesty that seems almost anachronistic.
Whether they use their bodies to trace their own personal losses or relationship issues, or approach the phenomena of space and time from a more abstract perspective – they always find a subtle balance between form and emotion, between narrative and abstraction.
