We have a critic of our own on our team. Our blogger Arne Siebert is an avid fan of Sommerblut. But he doesn’t like everything, of course. He knows: “We are so diverse. If you want to know whether it was really good or not, just go!” (#einfachhin) He reveals in his blog: what should you definitely not miss? And what were our performances like? He sometimes takes you backstage. And is Arne as non-binary and inclusive as Sommerblut? Find out on his blog #Simple2Go!

"A Universal Person" is a dance piece dealing with perception and truth.
