HAUSCHKA - Hauschka is the alias of German pianist composer Volker Bertelmann, who currently resides in Dusseldorf. Having studied classical piano for ten years, his work as Hauschka is based upon a playful exploration of the possibilities of the ‘prepared’ piano - a playfully disruptive intervention into the preconceived idea of the piano as a pure-toned, perfected instrument waiting for a gifted virtuoso to play on it. Hauschka released albums on the Karaoke Kalk and Fat Cat label. Besides working as Hauschka, Volker is a member of Music A.M., a collaboration with Stefan Schneider (To Rococco Rot) and Luke Sutherland (Long Fin Killie); and of the electronic club tracks duo Tonetraeger, his project with Torsten Mauss. He cooperated with Joey Burns, John Convertino from Calexico, múm drummer Samuli Kosminen and Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn.




The Gdańsk Dance Festival is held by Club Żak thanks to the support of the City of Gdańsk and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland.
