EX-APARTMENTS
August 2012
at Waldorf Astoria, Berlin


With Dani Brown and Daniel Miller
Ex-Apartments concept: Mathias Lilienthal
Curator: Anna Wagner

For most Berlin residents, City West has been living in the shadows for the last 20 years – even though the district around the Bahnhof Zoo has a glorious dance past to look back on. In 1926, Josephine Baker had her first German appearance on the Ku’damm, and in 1989 the very first Love Parade took place there.
EX-APARTMENTS investigates the mythos of a long forgotten neighborhood now trying to redefine itself. In 15 performances, 17 up-and-coming artists who all work in Berlin take a special look at the unknown empty spaces between construction booms and wrecking balls. The tension between interiors and exteriors, between the present, future and past make the old West Berlin a perfect field for experiments and projections.

Duration of each performance: 15 minutes
Each performance contains 4 people
Produced by the Hebbel Am Ufer theatre
Co-produced by TanzImAugust festival
