MICRO THEATRE: "La dolce vita" (Romuald Krężel & Monica Duncan)
MICRO THEATER: "La dolce vita" cuts things down: 16 minutes, 4 spotlights, 2 microphones, 1 projector and 1 prop. Romuald Krezel and Monica Duncan find their liberation in this and open a space that seeks to contemplate the economy of art. Less is more vs. la dolce vita. How everything fits into a small suitcase forms the central question of this action and is the great attraction at the same time.

Romuald Krężel is an independent theatre and performance maker, coming from Poland, based in Berlin. He creates different contemporary theatre forms including classic theatre works, participatory performances and choreographies. Monica Duncan is video artist and choreographer based in New York. Her time-based work investigates the nature of visual perception and audience-performer dynamics through camouflage, stillness and collective image-making.
Romuald and Monica began their collaborative work while studying together in the international MA in Choreography and Performance program at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen.
Under the artistic direction and management of Annemie Vanackere, HAU Hebbel am Ufer presents contemporary artistic positions that explore the intersection of theater, dance, and performance. In addition, music, visual arts, and theoretically oriented discursive events are core components of the diverse schedule of programming. Instead of relying on a permanent ensemble, HAU both develops and presents international co-productions, festivals and projects realized within and beyond Berlin’s international dance and theater community.
