Marius Leknes Snekkevåg is a young playwright and actor from Oslo, recently living in Berlin to do research and work on his latest script for Haugesund theatre. Trevor Good sat down with him to get to know more about his latest play that was commissioned after his last script “I love you let me go” was selected to be staged as a part of the Norwegian playwright festival 2009.
Jeffrey Sfire and Kevin Avery, two charming New Yorkers, came to Berlin two years ago and founded what was then new in town: the “Palisaden Supper Club”. Once a month, the club opened for 10 people, where Jeffrey and Kevin invited them to their home to spoil them with a dainty three course meal made from regional and seasonal products they found at the markets. It was so successful that the couple decided to go for the real deal and when they found an abandoned space on Graefestraße they knew it was the right time to turn their business into full time: “Little Otik” was born.
“The end of print” was predicted countless times and with the development of eBook readers this end seems to be irreversible. Can we think beyond the traditional form of the book in the age of web 2.0 and find a new form that stands the test against the endless digital memory capacity? Anja Lutz and Axel Lapp founded “The Green Box” publishing house to accept this challenge and present artist’s books, that are unparalleled in their inticrate bond of design and content. We met them in their offices in Prenzlauer Berg to talk about their program and the future of print. Unfortunately, this interview is as yet only available in German.
