K77 Factory (Meltem Nil, Marissa Niederhauser, Gosia Malgorzata, Etoile Chaville und Julian Datta, Laressa Dickey, Sven Seeger, Simon Rose, Nicola Metzger, Liz Erber, u.a.)
The K77 Factory is a site-specific performance work, consisting of numerous smaller works. The unique and multi-faceted K77 House Project land, buildings and courtyards serve as the stage and inspiration for new works from international and local artists. The audience is guided through the spaces, where they encounter a variety of performance events/ moments (3 minutes), as well as, longer pieces (up to 15 minutes). Unfolding from all directions and at different levels in space, the performances are at times directly in front of the viewer, or sometimes seen from afar, above, or below.

K77 Studio is one of Berlin’s small, alternative spaces with an illustrious history. The studio was built by an international group of young performing artists, who squatted the abandoned building after the fall of the wall. Since it’s beginning, the studio has been home to a wild variety of experimental, dance, and improvisational performance forms.
Today the studio is run by a non-profit collective and continues to host performance evenings, organized by members of the studio and artists-in-residence. Each month the studio runs its Variety Café Berlin, which features short pieces and works-in-progress from international performing artists working in dance, theater, music, and/or everything in between. The theater improv company, Scratch Theater, also hosts a monthly show in the studio.
