The Argentinean artists and guest professors Maricel Alvarez and Emilio García Wehbi presented the work-in-progress of their joint artistic and academic efforts with the text in relation to the collective, the architecture of the space and the material of Gertrude Stein’s libretto “Dr. Faustus Lights the Lights”. The installation is based on the formal structure as well as the conceptual and tonal possibilities of Stein’s libretto and was devised by M.A. Dance Studies students under the direction of Maricel Alvarez and Emilio García Wehbi at Free University Berlin.
