(...) a shamanistic-reflexive art evening, which captivates just as much, as it suspends any hasty assumptions.
Berliner Zeitung, 29.10.16
apparatus was founded by Thorsten Eibeler and Stefanie Wenner in early 2015 for their shared projects at the interface of art and science. The goal is a better representation of reality. For every project, apparatus assembles a different constellation of human and non-human collaborators into a temporary collective. Stefanie Wenner has a doctorate in philosophy and has worked as a curator e.g. at the HAU and for the Impulse Theater Festival. She is currently professor for Applied Theater Studies at the HfBK Dresden. Thorsten Eibeler studied German Literature, Philosophy and Applied Theater Studies in Gießen and is a founding member of the theater collective Showcase Beat Le Mot.
