Maricel Alvarez and Emilio Garcia Wehbi are a performing duo known in Argentinia as El Periférico de Objetos (The Peripherals of Objects). They perform at the interface between fine art and theater. Jointly with dance theater students, they began a research process starting with Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights (1938) by Gertrude Stein. The results are now being presented on stage. Following the performance, a conversation will take place between the artists and the scholar of theater studies, Professor Dr. Gabriele Brandstetter of Freie Universität.
The Valeska Gert Visiting Professorship at the Institute of Theater Studies is funded by Freie Universität Berlin, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Academy of Arts, Berlin.
