Girolamini (Simon Köslich)
A robbed library in Naples, a fake book in New York, a breathtaking discovery in Berlin. The affairs of a corrupt library director are the ideal material for a true crime story. The documentary theatre project Girolamini reconstructs two of the most spectacular cases in art crime of the past years and the experience of the team during research.

TATWERK | PERFORMATIVE FORSCHUNG is a production center and studio for the performing arts in Berlin. The artistic research focuses on physical theater, dance and performance with a particular focus on interdisciplinary projects.
TATWERK is a point of intersection for artists who choose the body as material and the research as a tool for their work. Our work consists of offering an artistic exchange platform for ideas, artistic practices and projects.
Our main interest is on multidisciplinary, political and poetic projects in the field of the performing arts. We are particularly interested in the research into thematic and aesthetic points of frictions between different artistics, social and scientific disciplines. The resulting schedule of programming consisting of classes, workshops and performance projects is completed by events and festivals where selected artists present their work in form of previews, work in progress or ready productions.
In addition, we offer support for issues relating to theater technology, production and PR.
TATWERK | PERFORMATIVE FORSCHUNG responds to the need of many artists for an open space and pursues long-term working relationships.
