The aftermaths of the press campaign against xplore during summer 2004 finally brought the Berlin senate to the decision to completely cut public funding for xplore. Our artistic and innovative intention was not doubted, nevertheless financial aid was taken away from us „due to the lack of political and public acceptance“.

After some unpleasant reflection we nevertheless decided to risk it again. We have to save money by inviting less presenters and „stars“ from abroad and unfortunately by raising the entrance fee. We will introduce some unknown faces with strong approaches. This way we will be able to maintain the spirit and the quality of the event and for the financial inconvenience we count on the comprehension of our old and new guests.

Besides the known excellent technical workshops the program of xplore will especially focus on emotion and expression, giving more room to performance and transgression.
We try to integrate some propositions of our guests from last year: we keep some of the most popular workshops in the program, some wokshops will be done twice, half of the workshops will be presented in English. As last year there will be extra presentations, performances and surprises.

Welcome to our playground!
