the invincible loser
i am a loser, and you, you're a loser too. then along comes this day. it makes you invincible. but you're still a loser. the only thing left to do is to make your way to berlin to participate in a workshop with first-rate-loser johannes wieland. be prepared for physical and mental exhaustion, being turned inside out and upside down with improvisation, movement and text.
some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!
