spielzeit’europa 2010 presents a video installation by artist Meggie Schneider in collaboration with Sasha Waltz & Guests on the facade of the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. The installation Composition With Twelve Windows features fragments of photographs by Bernd Uhlig, which were taken as part of Sasha Waltz’s project Dialoge 09 – MAXXI in Rome. The dancers perform gestures and expressions in the 12 windows allocated to them. This creates a new dialogue with the architecture of Fritz Bornemann’s theatre.
