Workshop will be given by Lars Neupert, (they/them)

lives and works in Dresden. Studied Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Glasgow and University of California, Berkeley.

Lars' performance work flirts with the boundaries of clowning, drag, polyphony, live art, sound art and practice as a research approach. Lars' explorations question representation and power dynamics and celebrate queerness and joyful resistance.
