The grand seigneur of the Swiss
performance scene, Norbert Klassen, has developed a very special “home”
evening for his visitors based on his 40-year experience in performances.
Klassen will present new and newly structured performance pieces such as
“My Personal Cage” as well as classics such as “My Favourite Performance
Life”, “By Doing Nothing Everything Gets Done” or “For the Birds”. In the
Kunstvereinsheim he will show the performance "The Art of Making Art".
Norbert Klassen, born in Duisburg/Germany
in 1941, attended the Westphalian School of Acting. Besides teaching acting
and performance at the School for Experimental Design in Zurich he has organized
different performance festivals, for example BONE in Bern. He is one of
the founders of the performance group “Black Market International”. Norbert
Klassen lives and works in Bern/Switzerland.
