Writing in Response to 'Cassandra Has Turned'
Cassandra, princess of Troy, has a gift and a curse: she can see the future, but is doomed to be disbelieved. In this two-part work, Cassandra is reimagined as a living archive of potential futures and alternative pasts, catastrophes and multiverse utopias to become a kaleido- scopic oracle in body and voice. This event is part of A Season of Performance Writing, a series of practical writing workshops for everyone interested in writing, performance, and writing about performance, led by INTERNATIONAL NOTICE.1 New dance-opera-performance by Kareth Schaffer, with Manon Parent, Lisa Vereertbrugghen, Cathy Walsh.

If you participate in A Season of Performance Writing, you will be invited to the dress rehearsals of five premieres across Berlin’s independent stages and spaces, ranging from dance to theater. After the show, lively writing exercises geared towards developing your skills, examining your ideas around performance, and writing from a fresh perspective will be facilitated. Sessions, held in English, are led by Richard Aslan and Louise Trueheart of INTERNATIONAL NOTICE whose joint experience encompasses performance making, choreography, writing, and editing. A Season of Performance Writing is brought to you by INTERNATIONAL NOTICE and THEATERSCOUTINGS BERLIN. INTERNATIONAL NOTICE is an artist-led project generating a constantly evolving archive of original and innovative critical writing in response to independent performance in Berlin.
Price for the season is 90 €, which includes the invitation to 5 performances and the writing workshops following each of them. An early-bird rate of 75 € is available until February 15th. (Prices are VAT inclusive.)
