After Beirut, Istanbul and Oslo,"Room" was hosted at the infamous Festspielhaus venue in Hellerau, the garden city of Dresden. From theatre/studio building/classroom built by Dalcroze in 1911, to police academy during Nazi times, to hospital and barracks under the Soviets, the Festspielhaus is today an arts and cultural center.

The performance was part of the Mashreq to Maghreb festival curated by Mia Habis and Omar Rajeh, and features Mia Habis (dance), Øyvind Skarbø (drums) and myself on prepared grand piano.
