PEARLS Artist Prize Winner 2016

I am the proud winner of the PEARLS Artist Prize 2016. Still speechless 🙂 Thanks you so much. This is a real present and an awesome motivation.


Adrian Künzel


As a result I will be giving a workshop together with Adi Halfin about film & dance next year in March 2017, a first test to merge some body work with filmmaking. The idea is to develop the wirkshop format into something like „physical filmmaking“: with a great emphasis on the body, our ability to be present in the moment, to sense the world around us.

All this will happen in DOCK 11. Feel free to apply. Please ask for more information here:

At some point on the wistful road of Joanna Gemma Auguris ‘Green Water’ EP, you realise you are being whispered to by a masterful singer-songwriter whose dreamy and honest lyrical depictions shine much light into the darkness of her music.
This deep and timeless folk, woven together in a place that could resemble the depths of the sea or in the fading light of a secret room you dreamt about once, is brought together at times with soft electronica that does anything but get in the way of her un-earthly voice atop an accordion which sounds like it’s born of her blood –
a nostalgic and analogue essence that clearly makes her music what it is.
Tangled up in the emotional and truthful moments that surely all people weave in and out of at some point in their lives, it becomes clear that this music carries great empathy for our lost and lonely bones.

Joanna Gemma Auguris ‘Green Water EP’ will be out on Baboushka Records on the 24th of february 2016.
Touring Germany in april 2016.
