    Workshop 2012

    The Göteborg String Theory and The Berlin String Theory executed a workshop in Aachen in July 2011, in cooperation with Christoph Scheinberger Artist Office, the curator Dr. Nina Mika-Helfmeier of Städteregion Aachen. Among the acts were the Japanese/Belgian dance company Irène K, whose improvised performance choreography was based on the musical piece No Gravity composed by Nackt, the all female teenage group Marching Mellows and the Persian/Polish band Celno & Gypsies and singer/songwriters Spjelle and Michael Witte. Also an electro acoustic composition by sound artist Helena Persson was performed, based on graphic notation and directed by musical director Simon Bauer. The workshop and the final sold-out public performance took place at Energeticon in Alsdorf. The visual artists Chérie (Berlin) and Christina Vantzou (Brussels) created short films that were displayed during the concert.
