Judith Kuckart at Queen Mary University of London

Judith Kuckart is a German dancer, choreographer, director and author. Her work ranges from plays to radio plays and from novels to stories. In the past the author cooperated with other colleagues like fine artists, so that another layer was added to her keenly observant and precisely formulated narrations. She will read from her works and the reading will be in German and English. Everyone is welcome! Feel free to bring other interested parties!
