Ana Berkenhoff & Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt’s “In the Penal Colony according to Franz Kafka” unsettles by connecting beauty and horror in language; Annegret Schlegel uses the “Task” as a way to reinvestigate body, language and text. In addition, short theatrical projects have been invited, recently created in Gießen under the direction of Heiner Goebbels.
