QUEST (Katrin Hahner, Eva Meyer-Keller, Agata Siniarska, William Locke Wheeler) is a group of affiliated artists (performers, theatermakers, a translator, a musician, a shaman, one mother, 4 careworkers and an elder care nursing assistant) who met regularly throughout 2022, sharing their practices, opening them up to new questions, perspectives and challenges. Our motto is: “We don’t want to sit and wait for a better tomorrow. The sun will not come out after the storm. We are here and now, floating in a mass of information and problems. We will not wait for the system to change. We will make our own system of support, care, and attention to one another at eye level, creating safe spaces for our growth as artists and the growth of those we care about and for.” QUEST is about being here together to challenge each other and cause artistic headaches, to push when we are lazy, support when we are afraid, hold hands, run together, walk together, and sometimes close our eyes and listen to the pulse of life. It’s probably nothing, it’s probably what a lot of people do. It’s a situation created from our needs – it may seem a very small need, but a QUEST doesn’t measure needs on scales of lesser to greater. It focusus on the journey and the questioning, and it is for our need for questioning and journeying which we want to create time and space.
