DECEMBER 2017

 

DEC 01       GET-TOGETHER

LUNCH DATE WITH THE TEAM OF SOPHIENSÆLE

In October, we’ll invite you to a lunch date with the team of Sophiensæle to get to know each other informally. There is also a short introduction to the upcoming programme.

 

DEC 06       NEIGHBOURHOOD | FREE TICKETS

KIEZKANTINE

Kiezkantine is a neighbourhood cafe and a circuit training all at once. Following five stations you’ll hear personal stories and experience Berlin Mitte beyond the usual clichés. The current issue is devoted to Love: we invited a wedding speaker, an editor of romantic novels and a bondage artist.

DEC 10       PERFORMANCE | LC-TICKETS

SLIME DYNAMICS (SIEGMAR ZACHARIAS)

Wet, fluid glitch – with two hundred liters of fake slime and three female bodies performance artist Siegmar Zacharias explores the space between form and shapelessness, talking and leaking, desire and disgust, intimacy and alienation. The performance leads us into an unspeakable cosmos made of fleshy geometries and liquified landscapes.

 >> Get LC-Tickets for the performance. (Suitable for English speakers)

ACROSS THE MIDDLE, PAST THE EAST (AN UNSETTELED CABARET)

A temporary collective of female identified artists with Eastern Mediterranean origins is delving into the complexity of the region.

FEB 02       PERFORMANCE | LC-TICKETS + REFLECTION

BROT UND SPIELE (INTERROBANG) + RETROSPECTIVE IMPROVISATION

After that Theaterscoutings offers a different kind of after talk: the audience turns into the directors of the performance: a vivid discussion between platform and audience – retrospective and improvised.
