Frank Willens

Towards Another Miraculous


Frank Willens became known for his work with Meg Stuart and Laurent Chétouane amongst others. Last summer he gave a shining performance on the lawn in front of HAU2 with his interpretation of a work by Tino Sehgal. Now, the choreographer deals with the unfinished trilogy “In Search of the Miraculous” by Bas Jan Ader. Together with the dancer Maria Francesca Scaroni, Frank Willens wanders aimlessly through the streets of Berlin, looking for the miraculous.
