A production by Das Helmi in co-production with Ballhaus Ost. Funded by the German Capital Culture Fund.
Ballhaus Ost is a production space for independent theatre, performance and dance.
Located in the former celebration and assembly hall of a Berlin Free Church Community, built in 1907, Ballhaus Ost cooperates with groups and artists from all fields of the performing arts, including well established groups and artists as well as newcomers and so far not well known participants of the independent theater scene.
As an experimental stage for various forms of contemporary theatre, Ballhaus Ost invites to experience and discover new ways of artistic debates with today's reality of life.
Before the venue was reestablished as theatre, in the GDR, the ballroom was used as „Casino des Handwerks“, after the breakdown oft he wall it was a pool hall and a night club.
Ballhaus Ost was established by the directors Uwe-Moritz Eichler, Philipp Reuter and the actress Anne Tismer in 2006. Since 2011 Daniel Schrader and Tina Pfurr have been the artistic directors.
