Multiple Dianas at WERK X-Petersplatz

My latest visit to WERK X-Petersplatz took me to the final rehearsal of the whirlwind contemporary play “What did you do when Lady Di died” by Katharina Kummer – a “chorus of princesses”, as one tagline refers to it.

But I wanted toContinue reading “Ernst Haas – The Art of Seeing”

Those are the questions asked in this highly engaging and topical play “Bibi Sara Kali” by Ibrahim Amir and Simonida Selimović. I was lucky enough to beContinue reading “Bibi Sara Kali: Cultural identities at WERK X-Petersplatz”
