Four times throughout the year, Dirty Debüt offers four emerging performance artists a platform to show sketches, unfinished projects, or even dirty works in response to a concrete theme or idea. The performances themselves are then are followed up by a discussions and a feedback session over a shared meal. Each new edition will employ different methods of giving and receiving feedback, which will be led and moderated by changing guests with relevant expertise.
Dirty Debüt doesn’t only focus on the visibility of performance artists that still fly under the radar of most houses and their visitors. It also highlights the wide range of the whole performance scene: the so-called performance theater; performances in the tradition of body art; and exchange between performance and dance or visual art. Dirty Debüt is a gathering place for a variety of approaches, formats and forms of expression and brings them all together onto one stage.
