Werkgruppe2 is a collective of director Julia Roesler, musician and composer Insa Rudolph, dramaturge Silke Merzhäuser and videographer Isabel Robson. Since 2009 they have been developing hybrid projects of storytelling, mainly film and theater projects – between documentation and fiction, between drama and music theater, between town and country.
