Fulbright Center Cyprus - UN buffer zone

28 Markou Drakou

Within the framework of the "Weeks of the German language"

Why does amateur theatre exist? Why do art workshops for refugees exist? Why do bi-communal and intercommunal music ensembles exist? This year, Cypriot and international artists, social workers, academics and politicians will explore these issues in a Long Table discussion, which is taking place in the framework of the Buffer Fringe Festival. At the invitation of the Goethe-Institut, the German cultural manager and director of the Frankfurt LAB, Hanna Knell, will also take part in the event.

Hanna Knell is project manager of Frankfurt LAB, an experimental institution for contemporary performing arts. She studied theatre, film and media sciences as well as visual anthropology and cultural management in Frankfurt/Main and Sevilla. Since 2012 she works in different artistic contexts as a curator, artistic director, public relations manager and scientist at the Weltkulturen Museum, the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, the University of Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt and the site specific performance festival Implementieren. From 2016-18 she was board member of the nonprofit association ID_Frankfurt_Independant Dance & Performance.
