Figures in fantastical costumes, moving sparkling stones and words:“Sketches/Notebook” was created in January 2013 resulting from an invitation byHAU Hebbel am Ufer. The choreographer and dancer Meg Stuart led various artiststo bring their different talents, backgrounds and abilities into a process ofdeveloping common proposals. From their sketches and intimate investigationsarose a pulsing world of light, music, objects and gestures on stage – anexuberant laboratory for testing boundaries. After five years of touring thegroup is now coming together again for two weeks at the place where it allbegan to create an expanded version of “Sketches/Notebook” next to carrying onwith other projects – from glittering parades and a motor vehicle transforminginto a clay sculpture to a poetry-reading. Under the titel “Supernova,” afterthe astronomical phenomenon in which a star explodes, briefly blazing morebrightly than ever before, this project expands in just that way, sounding outboundaries and bringing a variety of art forms to­gether in a collectiveritual.
