Dwarsdriewer means Anthward Drifter.
Originally this describes a ship on a wrong course. But also a person can be meant. Someone who drifts through life in an unusual way. Thinking differently, discovering and inventing.
The Dwarslöper (=anthwards runner) is the crab
The first edition of Dwarsdriewer took place the 25th and 26th may 2019 on the Jugendgruppenzeltplatz Noer directly at the beach. We wanted to focus on the intense exchange between artists and audience. The common separation between stage and audience space will be dissolved to make art more accesable and graspable.
During the day there were a large number of dance, movement, circus performances and installations to watch and several workshops to participate in. In the evening there was a bigger performance with mixed program of 90 minutes endurance in total.
After that there was a campfire, music, food and drinks to relax and talk about the impressions of the day.
Everyone was welcome to camp on the festival area because on sunday morning we were concluding the festival with more workshops and performances. At aproximately 14:00 everyone went home hopefully filled with new impressions and experiences.
