Since 2008 the core part of the former Theater Karlshorst has been empty. For members of the Berlin-based collective hannsjana, this is a reason to search for traces. They ask the audience of the time about past experiences that have stuck to their mind: the most exciting performances, the most lavish stage sets or the most famous actresses and actors. What is at least as thrilling is the choice of one’s attire for the theatre evening, the champagne bar during the break, or rushing through the foyer when arriving late again.
In the audio walk, today’s audience encounters the acoustic memories of the Theater Karlshorst and listens to anecdotes of moving experiences at other theatres, with a gang of limelight hogs repeatedly pushing themselves to the fore. This playful species of pigs with a propensity for theatre has found a perfect habitat in the empty theatre building. Undisturbed, the limelight hogs stage their own memories of the theatre and those of others on a daily basis: state ballet meets youth ceremony, musical meets avant-garde performance art.
Please inform yourself about our current admission and hygiene rules before the event.
