After performances in Helsinki and Frankfurt, Dining Room Tales #7 finally makes it down under. Join internationally renowned performance artist, and co-founder of the seminal Black Market International, Jürgen Fritz for the Australian premiere season of his Dining Room Tale, performed in a setting by installation artist Christine Biehler.
Jürgen Fritz was born in 1958 in the Black Forest in Germany. He is a founding member of the revered Black Market International, a cooperation of artists that has been performing worldwide since 1985.
Since 2012 he has lived in Hanau, where he is the co-founder of the International Performance Association (IPA), and co-organiser of the IPA Summer and Platform for Young Performance Artists. He also lectures in Performance Art at various European universities,and organises and stages theatre productions with social fringe groups.
Jürgen's performances are characterised by great concentration and precision, often using very simple materials -- bamboo sticks, marbles, adhesive tape, pocket knives -- to create very impressive images. He has shown his performances all over Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico, Asia and Australia.
