DARUM. Darstellende Kunst und Musik
DARUM. Performing Arts and Music
The collective DARUM. Darstellende Kunst und Musik was founded in 2018. DARUM makes interdisciplinary art by combining theater, film, music, literature, room and visual art with performance. Our works always ask why and attempt to productively fail at finding an answer contrary the group‘s name (DARUM=because). We see ourselves as a creative hub for artists from diverse backgrounds with individual expertise spanning free and instituational work in the performing arts. The group is headed by Laura Andreß, Victoria Halper und Kai Krösche.
A large portion of out recent conceptual work includes hands-on research where we visit people and places dealing with our themes. We present our audiences with fully immersive art that plays with what is authentic and what is fake.
DARUMs debut performance "Ungebetene Gäste / Uninvited Guests" was recieved much critical acclaim and was nominated for the prestigous Austrian Theatre Award, the NESTORY in 2019.
Our current project is "Ausgang: Offen", coproduced by WUK performing arts.
