Some of the projects are international projects or educational projects.

Mission and Objectives: 

artscenico e.V. is creating diverse cultural productions such as performances, exhibitions and multimedia and intercultural site-specific projects.
We aim to create artistic research that looks at the fringes of our society.
Whenever possible we are looking for international contacts and encounters.

Main Projects / Activities: 

As a company "without a real home" the artistic work focuses on special spaces and places. Site-specific productions have become the main field of interest for artscenico`s artistic realizations over the last years.
Abandoned industrial wasteland, former factory halls, public parks and other non-theatre places lay the foundations for new and unusual pieces of art derived from the different perspectives of many artists and realms of arts including the artistic work of dancers, actors, authors and singers as well as photographers, film-makers, authors, musicians and even scientists or athletes.
The last projects were “Sanctuary”, “Rituals”, “Heimat surreal/embedded in nature” with partners from Lithuania, Poland, Turkey, Malta.
