Over ten years ago, choreographer Anouk van Dijk created the production Nothing Hurts in collaboration with the German director and author Falk Richter. Afterwards, Anouk and Falk always kept an eye on one another and remained fascinated by each other’s multi-layered way of working, different forms of expression and urge to reflect on the spirit of the times.

Falk Richter studied at the University of Hamburg under direction of Jürgen Flimm; since then he has been a freelance author, translator and director. He presented his first big production Silicon during the Junge Hunde festival 1996 at Kampnagel Hamburg.
