Krispy Dream. Ein Portier denkt über sein Leben nach

The devised play tells of a porter. An outsider who works where others live. In the lobby in a city that never sleeps. A story about a working cosmos, the American Dream and a character that collapses when it can no longer be itself.

 

Meta Imbiss, founded by Stella Nikisch and Nathalie Schatz, mixes pop culture with theater, thinks content and aesthetics together and likes to collaborate, in short: it stands for fire, fun and fashion.

Ambient 2: War of the Worlds

 

In his Ambient Theater series, Daniel Schrader develops relaxed forms of spoken theater. With headphones on their ears and their eyes on the landscape, participants experience the sci-fi radio play “War of the Worlds” by H.G. Wells, park life and live interventions by the Performers.

 

Free admission on 2.9. as part of the Kultursommerfestival. Registration at: karten@ballhausost.de

Junge Leute

In his documentary »barfuß und ohne hut« (“barefoot and without a hat”), Jürgen Böttcher portrayed “Young People” (the working title at the time) with their visions of the future in the free space between school and working life in 1964. In the middle of Wedding, the Humboldthain Club will now be transformed into a beach bar on the Baltic Sea coast, where six performers will venture a reenactment with the audience: with music, in exhilaration, in movement, but also in relaxation, they will compare scenes from the film with their own professional hopes and desires.

 

Sebastian Mauksch & Team stage participatory theater for children and young people and research the art of adolescence for the Berliner Festspiele. Their works have been invited to AUGENBLICK MAL! – The Festival of Theater for Young Audiences as well as to WILDWECHSEL – The Children’s & Youth Theater Festival in Eastern Germany, among others.

TWO. Not a Solo by Lisa Verbelen and Hendrik Lasure

Lisa Verbelen will not make a solo this time. In »TWO.« she forms a duo with celebrated jazz musician Hendrik Lasure.»TWO.« is an exercise to reverse thinking in opposites and to experience what is in between two extremes. Expect a musical and theatrical concert, words and music that make you feel and think, both hard and soft, both dark and light, with smoke and fire, water in the desert, not ugly nor beautiful, all yin and yang, about you and me.


 

Lisa Verbelen (1988) studied Theatrical Performance at De Toneelacademie in Maastricht, and a Master in Music Theatre at the Conservatory of Den Haag.  Together with five others, Lisa founded the theatre collective BOG. in 2013. BOG. is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and creates performances based on texts written by the creators themselves.  

Hendrik Lasure (1997) studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and was awarded with the Toots Thielemans Jazz Award at his graduation in 2017.  Hendrik is a musical jack of all trades, known for his band SCHNTZL, the ensemble Warm Bad, the trio Thunderblender, or APQ, or Bombataz or in the band of An Pierlé.

The extended voice

Andrea Neumann »Rencontre 5« (2022, UA)

The program »The extended voice« will present vocal music of the 21st century in the thematic field opened by the coordinates of ‘extended vocal techniques’, ‘language as musical material’ and ‘voice as physicality in movement’.

 

The Maulwerkers are a vocal ensemble, music performers, music theater makers and a collective of composers. They are specialists in the intersections of music and theater, music and language, in the interpenetration of music and space, of sound and silence.

SCHRUMPF! The extended voice

The Maulwerkers present brand new pieces, freshly written for them, show you the special sounds they have developed and perfected over the years and teach you these extended techniques. Together we will make the Ballhaus Ost ring with our bubbling, shouting, warbling, hissing and much more!

At SCHRUMPF! Berlin ensembles present their current productions – in family format. New art forms are discovered, places explored, movements tried out, sounds listened to – and everyone can join in.

Daniella Strasfogel is a violinist, performer and facilitator in Berlin. She is a founding member of the soloist ensemble Kaleidoskop in Berlin and founded LOUDsoft in 2018, out of the impulse to create multidimensional musical experiences for and with families.

ANAL.IZANDO

»ANAL.IZANDO« is a performative dance solo, a dream-like ritual. Flowing through a constant state of becoming, ronald oscillates in an ecstasy of multi-layered selves. »ANAL.IZANDO« exists as a continuous transformation through non-binary figures — mythological, technological, corporal and non-corporal, — as projections of utopian consciouses.


 

ronald berger is a non-binary dancer and performer from Costa Rica based in Berlin. Their connection to nature and its performative qualities influenced ronald. The conflict between their sexuality and the strong catholic and chauvinist context of their natal country, inspires debates, analysis and questions regarding social behavior. 

It’s about time

A Durational Online Festival A new festival: It’s about time! It’s about time! (Es ist Zeit!) It’s finally about time! (Es geht endlich los!) It has been about time (Die Zeit war reif) since November 2020. Back then many people were supposed to come together for four days in very small spaces for very long or very short performances. But the festival went with time and transformed its essence: It moved its program into the endless time and space of the Internet and will present itself there from September 2021. Curated by Anne Brammen, Monika Gintersdorfer, Tina Pfurr and Daniel Schrader, the Durational Online Festival It’s about time will develop, present and archive artistic works by Barbara Lenartz, Club Real, Elisabeth Tambwe, Felizitas Stilleke | Smruthi Gargi Eswar, GRUPO D3 CHOK3, Markus&Markus, ONCE WE WERE ISLANDS, vorschlag:hammer, vt corp. and many more for an unpredictably long period of time. It’s about time is a tribute to durational performances that allows art to take its time. It is a festival that will last.
