Jan-Philipp Possmann (*1975 in Frankfurt/Main) studied Theater- and Political-Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin. From 1999 to 2007 he directed and produced  theater performances in Berlin. As dramaturg and producer he has worked with international artists like Rimini Protokoll, Patrick Wengenroth, David Hermann  and repeatedly with David Weber-Krebs. From 2005 to 2007 he curated and directed the international performance festival Plateaux at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt/Main. 2007/2008 he was the house dramaturg of Sophiensaele, Berlin. In 2007 and 2009 he was the festival dramaturg for  Internationale Schillertage. Currently he is a dramaturg at Nationaltheater Mannheim and associated artistic researcher at the Amsterdam School of the Arts.
David Weber-Krebs (*1974, Liège (B)) studied French literature and religious sciences in Fribourg and Berlin and graduated from the Mimeschool at the Theatershool in Amsterdam. His work is an effort to combine philosophical and political interrogations around metaphysics, romanticism or the sublime with reflections on the mechanisms and potential of a situation given in a theatre. His work cultivates ambiguity, between transcendence and immanence, between fascination and critical distance.
David develops ideas that find their realisation in performances, films and installations. His recent works are this performance (2004), Fade out (2005), Sacre (2006) and the words Jonathan said (2007).
David is co-founder of LISA, a collective of makers based in Amsterdam.
