David Weber-Krebs: and then the doors opened again
The project brings together 75 visions by artists, scholars, curators and spectators, created in response to a question sent to them by David Weber-Krebs in the middle of the first wave of Covid-19 in Europe: What will happen on your first theatre visit after the lockdown? While being confined at home, David found himself thinking about the day when theatres would open their doors again. It somehow seemed impossible to picture this moment. With contributions by Mathilde Villeneuve (artistic leader BUDA), Antonia Baehr, Nicole Beutler, Charlotte De Somviele, Katja Dreyer, Nada Gambier, Matthieu Goeury, Mette Ingvartsen, Ivana Müller, Jonas Rutgeerts, ...
There are some copies of the book available in BUDA.
