20 years of Moving Poets

In October of 2017 it will be 20 years since we opened our first season with the world premier production of DRACULA in the ruins of the Carolina Theatre in Charlotte.

During 2017-18 we celebrate the occasion with fascinating projects on both sides of the pont, including the further development of the internationally migrating We See Heaven Upside Down, participating in Elysium Solutum in Berlin, contributing to Charlotte Fringe Arts Events and our intimate Cabin Fever,

The big celebration though will happen in March 2018 when we bring together Moving Poets artists from around the world in Charlotte for the world premier of Speakeasy. More info and exact dates will be announced soon, stay tuned!

#

Paradise resolved or diluted Walhalla.

A hopelessly optimistic art project at the interface to science and technology.

From June until September 2017 participating artists, curators and scientists will turn moving poets Berlin's NOVILLA into the genius loci of an "island of the blessed Gesamtkunstwerk". Utopians of steampunk, painters, sculptors, performers, musicians, sound and media artists meet scientists and manufacturers of the sustainable, futuristic, highly economical and biodegradable. With exhibitions, performances, (interactive) installations, concerts, actions, presentations, scientific and artistic salons and workshops.
