Maria Guggenbichler

Maria Guggenbichler thinks, laughs, dances, plays, collaborates, doubts, listens, talks, walks, organizes, publishes and hides, works and not works, and spoils the broth with too many cooks, fellow strangers, and friends. Maria has been collaborating with her friend Amal Alhaag since 2013. Together they initiated and ran the Side Room in Amsterdam (2013-2016) and collaborate on many other events, pranks, and trickster moves.
