Zum Festivalprogramm

The artists are tested on a daily basis. We are grateful if you also test yourself before visiting the festival!

With “For your eyes only,” the Schwankhalle invites the audience to a On-on-One Festival on the grounds of the former racecourse in Vahr on three weekends in October. In the towers once used to watch the horseraces, in the catering pavilions and the former betting stalls, 15 Bremen-based artists await their audience—with short 15-minute performances for one member of the audience at a time developed specifically for the festival.

The works presented in an exclusive tête-à-tête are as varied as Bremen’s art scene. Here, artificial intelligence meets fortune-telling, baile funk meets a wheel of fortune, and a queer family get-together meets a balancing act with a Plexiglas pane—just to mention a few of the numerous combination possibilities.

External venue: Galopprennbahn +++

Because for once, the visitors do not decide themselves for which performance they purchase a ticket. Instead, a period of time is selected and the artists they will encounter are drawn by lot. What is recommended is a combination bet with at least three 15-minute performances. Minor waiting times can be perfectly bridged in the temporary betting lounge in the festival center.

In addition to the productions of the Bremen-based artists, we will present two guest performances in the frame of the festival that also function according to the one-on-on principle: With ›Artist Talk›, Jan Philipp Stange invites the audience to a personal tête-à-tête between human and avatar, and in ›Die Vier in der Nähe‹ (›Four in the Vicinity‹) the Hysterisches Globusgefühl collective asks how one can actually look four people in the eye at the same time.

‚For Your Eyes Only‘ is a follow-up project to ‚Blind Dates‘ as part of the Homo Novus Festival in Bremen‘s partner city Riga, in cooperation with the Homo Novus Festival and the Goethe Institut Riga.
