For all participants and guests of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival.
Part of the ancillary program conceived and developed by the Performing Arts Festival team.
Daniel Brunet is a director, performer, producer and translator. Born in Syracuse, New York in 1979, he studied theater and film at Boston College. He moved to Berlin in 2001 with the support of a Fulbright Scholarship. Brunet became Producing Artistic Director of English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center in 2012.
In Aquarium, located on the southwest end of Kotti, new spaces for encounters, exchanges and networking have been created, initiated by the team of the neighboring Südblock.
There, myriad space requests come together, for example, for neighborhood and networking meetings, for spaces to conduct conferences, art and culture projects or barrier-free spaces for counselling. In light of this, it was obvious that an application needed to be made for the empty space two doors down from Südblock. Aquarien Meyer had moved out of the storefront on the ground floor. An organizational structure was established.
Following comprehensive renovation and construction work, one third of the barrier-free area is now used for offices and advisement, including the associations ASL (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für selbstbestimmtes Leben schwerstbehinderter Menschen) e.V. and BAV (Berliner Assistenzverein) e.V..
Two thirds of the area is available for flexible use. Neighbors, various initiatives and groups meet here, there are panel discussions, readings, seminars and workshops and a wide variety of exhibition concepts find the space they are looking for here.
