On Tour

Cheers for Fears on Tour in Essen (2016)

9th of January 2016 at the Meierei der Folkwang Universität der Künste Essen

For the 6th time, Cheers for Fears invited to the on tour format on 9 January 2016 – art and theatre students from NRW had the opportunity to present their work, but above all to present their working statuses and sketches and to discuss them with an interdisciplinary audience. There were positions from the fields of contemporary dance, media art, physical theatre, electronic composition and theatre studies. As with the first edition, we were guests at the Folkwang Meierei on the Werden campus.
