Jo Koppe creates an out-of-the-ordinary face to face meeting governed by certain rules. It is an experimental arrangement which chooses to view intimate exchanges as something purposefully fabricated (instead of simply ‘happening’ between the ‘right’ people). To each appointment Jo Koppe will invite a single guest to share a meal and enjoy a private conversation with him in an extraordinary place. The host is responsible for the food and the guest for the drinks. The pre-defined topic of conversation is structured along a succession of questions. When did you have your last personal encounter with a stranger, without fear of big themes?

Friday, 2nd June, 13h : DEATH, 19h : SEX

Saturday, 3rd June, 13h : FAMILY, 19h : TRUTH

Sunday, 4th June, 13h : BODY, 19h : MONEY 


Jo Koppe’s interest lies in the creation of in-between spaces for poetic experiences. His works are often situated at the crossover of artistic, physical and social practices. He trained at TIP/Bewegungs-art Freiburg and received the DanceWEB- scholarship during Impulstanz-Festival Wien 2015. Among other events he has presented solo works during Tanztage Berlin and at the International Solotanztheaterfestival Stuttgart; past collaborations include working with Keith Hennessy, Lea Martini, Aurora Kellermann, Costas Lamproulis.

Gefördert durch das Kulturamt Freiburg und durch den Landesverband Freie Tanz- und Theaterschaffende Baden-Württemberg e.V. aus Mitteln des Ministeriums für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst des Landes Baden-Württemberg.
