«KUNST IM HOF»
"KUNST IM HOF" ("ART IN THE YARD") seeks genuine contact and intense moments between artist and spectator. The Biohof Schüpfenried is a place of encounter and exchange. Under "KUNST IM HOF" performative art events and courses take place regularly, inviting the audience to come closer to dance and theater. Out of the conventional black theater box and the conventional traditions of theater, into new forms and spaces, where art opens horizons in the countryside. This invites the audience to a change of perspective, breaking the classic stage-audience arrangement and opening up new cultural spaces and arrangements.
