ABOUT

BIRGIT WIEGER is a Berlin based performer, choreographer and director from the field of movement- and object theater. Thereby she focuses on interactive, site-specific and live art formats and often collaborates in interdisciplinary projects.

Her projects investigate the intersection of reality and fiction, characterized by the experiences of everyday life specialist.
