The seventh Series of Extension presents two young artists, the German Sylvia Rimat and the Dutch Nina Boas, whose pieces of work play humorously with theatrical illusions and the use of fine narrative mechanisms of interaction with the audience.

Despite these similarities, both artists present different performance styles and subject approaches. Sylvia uses mostly speech and written text in order to evoke imaginated actions, situations, objects and spaces, questioning the theatrical conventions of the stage. Nina creates a parallel wonderland full of surprises and naive representations of the daily life, using live drawings and video projections.

The Grimmuseum opens regularly Wednesday–Sunday; 2–7 pm
