nein9 solo evenings

...recalibrate boundaries between the human and the non-human. We are going to share space, admit grievances through dance, slams and sound, whilst looking for new figurations of transformation.

Production, Support and Care Community: nein9 kollektiv – is a composition of non-hierarchical spontaneity. Our community space contains spaces and dialogues on nurturing inclusivity and embracing the paradoxical and chaosmic dialects of violence and care through questioning: How can embodiment be the revolution of our times?

Blank Check Festival 2

In the festival’s second edition nein9 celebrates live art through a patchwork of recent works.


The festival is a space to share the recent works of the nein9 community. This year’s edition highlights on-going processes and practice-led investigations, inviting the audience to participate in the research of everyday life - ways of being with, in, and through the world. The festival also marks the expansion of nein9 through new members and bridges with international collectives – nein9 invites fellow practitioners to encounter and join the community.

Blank Check Festival ‘23 is fantasy, uncertainty, comedy, tragedy, resistance, depth, mythology, improvisation, release, utopia, ritual, suggestion. Performers are leaning, tending, falling, smashing, sketching, distorting, punctuating, clarifying, questioning.

Blank Check Festival

March 10-13, 2022

In cooperation with DOCK11 and Acker Stadt Palast

nein9 kollektiv’s Berlin debut, celebrating live art through a patchwork of recent works.

Blank Check festival presents a new generation of movement and choreography artists in their Berlin debut; a melting pot of individual pasts and presents. The festival is a space to reveal and share the recent works of nein9 kollektiv, their collaborators and invited guests. Forming a curational collage, with each evening celebrating and providing insight into radically different approaches to the performance arts. The first night foregrounds body and perception. The second, tension: grasp and release, loss and power. The third ponders balance and disharmony, through the works of invited guests. The fourth and final night, communion.
