Sharings are public rehearsals that bring artists and interested audiences together. Such sharings offer insight into the creative processes of artists who are currently rehearsing at the Dampfzentrale Bern. They show what they are currently working on, what they are occupied with, and what is going on in an uncomplicated setting. Afterwards, the artists welcome discussion with their future audience. The Dampfzentrale Bern dramaturgical team moderates and supervises the sharings.

«UNMEASUREMENT» focuses on inaccuracies, the failure of the measuring process. Following the logic of measuring, marking and constructing, the research express the underlying difficulties of an unmeasurable world and the beauty of the indeterminable. Through dance, acrobatic and balancing movements the basic forces of physics and our willingness to take risks are examined and choreographed. Across object manipulations, projections and musical explorations, the performers develop a kind of inversion of measurement – towards a multiplication of possibilities, a poetics of the indefinite.
