Beauty & the Beast (Enis Turan)
Are you ready to meet your Superstar? The big moment you have been dreaming of is now becoming real! Your Superstar stands right next to you, for YOU. And big emotions are ahead.
A staging. A deconstruction. A personal manifestation. A reflection. A freak-show.
The (Re-)search to unite the beauty and the beast in one. A body of unification and transgression. A fusion of parody and sincerity. A transcendency. A queer anthem to freedom and individuality. The liminality, where “beauty” and “beast” do no longer exist.

Apart from his own work he hasworked with Josep Caballero Garcia, Jolika Sudermann, Erna Omarsdottir, Paul Blackman and Dewey Dell.
Under the artistic direction and management of Annemie Vanackere, HAU Hebbel am Ufer presents contemporary artistic positions that explore the intersection of theatre, dance, and performance. In addition, music, visual arts, and theoretically oriented discursive events are core components of the diverse program. Instead of relying on a permanent ensemble, HAU does not only develop, but also presents international co-productions, festivals, and projects realized within and beyond Berlin’s international dance and theatre scene. Since 2013, HAU Hebbel am Ufer has, for instance, been solely responsible for organizing the “Tanz im August” festival. Crucial cornerstones of the program are a contemporary repertoire including renowned classics as well as festivals highlighting current themes, as could for instance be seen in “Precarious Bodies. Tanz, Performance, Körperpolitik“ (2013), “Das Große Nature Theater of Oklahoma ruft Euch!“ (2013), “Good Guys Only Win in Movies. Künstlerische Positionen aus Bukarest und Chisinau“ (2014), "Männlich Weiß Hetero. Ein Festival über Privilegien" (2015), “HEINER MÜLLER!“ (2016), or "Utopische Realitäten" (2017).
