On the duo Aside:

The duo Aside (Meriel Price and Johann-Michael Schneider) create contemporary music theatre, working within the space that can open up between what is intended and the outcome, between expectation, disappointment and fulfillment. Aside blurs the boundaries between performance and composition, between

Aside examines performance in all its forms, whether on stage or in everyday life. They draw their material from that which is unintended, private, uncontrolled, uncomfortable, accidental, and mistaken. Aside enlarges and transforms this material, focussing on that which normally would be ignored or attempted to be hidden. This confrontation with a sometimes uncomfortable reality provides an opportunity to reconsider expectations and the traditions that support them.

(Michael, can you rewrite this so it sounds a bit more convincing?)

Aside examines, deconstructs (do we need this word?) and challenges the expectations of each specific audience found in each specific venue. They develop performances and compositions which are tailor made for each performance space, its location, programme and audience.

Aside have played diverse venues such as the Mojo Club for 150% Made in Hamburg Theaterfest, Theater Reutlingen, Unerhörte Musik und Labor Sonor Berlin and are currently working on their latest programme with British composer Larry Goves for the Aldeburgh Festival at Snape Maltings.

Miriam Akkermann is responsible for this workshop.
