Hybrid Love is an appeal to love and sensitivity. This work is a radically affectionate, thought-provoking impulse and a plea for love for each other, for mutual respect which enables community. Community love is the connector, the hybrid, that brings us together. Hybrid Love calls us to connect, to engage, and to have fun together - fun in the experience, fun in the joy, fun in being together again!

Ten stage productions were created during this time, in a range between dance, performance, and visual art. HARTMANNMUELLER was founded by Simon Hartmann and Daniel Ernesto Mueller in 2011, the two having met during their studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. Hartmannmueller are the recipients of the Excellence Grant awarded by the State of North Rhine-Westphalia from 2021 until 2023.
