Open South Sea Stage – What I am? (dorisdean)
A very good evening to the millions of audience members watching from home, welcome to a new edition of our program: WHAT - AM - I?!
My name is Martin Horsch. It’s wonderful that you’re here. Here in the studio, I am welcoming our team of guessers, from left to right: Gitte, Heiderose, Stefanie and Heiner.
Our first guest tonight has brought a very special different ability with them. Now welcome them with a nice round of applause in full awareness of your own abilities with a FLOURISH!: …
Was bin ich? (What Am I?) was a legendary call-in television quiz with Robert Lembke which the former West Germany used to delude itself into believing in an intact and secure architecture within the working world. In 1989, the Berlin Wall came down, Robert Lembke died and the program was banished to the archives.
dorisdean has dusted it off and turned it into a playful game show concert for the whole family. Live in the studio or sitting at home in front of the TV, it is about a search for game shows, the history of Germany and our shared dream, no, trauma. After all: who is still interested in job titles today? Different abilities are the future! One moderator, one candidate and four talented guessers, musical contributions, interview sequences and fabulous prizes - what else do we need?

dorisdean is an independent mix-abled performance company from North Rhine-Westphalia that has created performances since 2011 examining different questions pertaining to human coexistence, communication and the unease in direct interaction. In doing so, the attention is always placed on the defect, the imperfect in/about human beings and the stigma. The group attempts to shift the perceptions of the audience and the members of the group and offers itself up for discussion in exactly the same way.
Alte Münze in Mitte has been the home of Berlin’s mint since the 1930s. Here, Reichmarks were printed by the National Socialists, then East German marks, followed by Deutschmarks and euros after German Reunification and the introduction of the euro until the mint was moved to Reinickendorf in 2005.
The premises are currently managed by Spreewerkstätten. Since 2013, they have successively developed various areas in Alte Münze and made them usable. Culture makers, music producers, artists working in all genres as well as art and music festival presenters and social startups realize a wide variety of projects in Alte Münze today in the culture and creative economy sectors and program the event areas.
The future of Alte Münze is currently the topic of active debate by Berlin’s cultural policy makers. In light of this, PAF is even more excited to be able to be a guest here. It allows this much-discussed location in the middle of the city to be temporarily experienced together by audience members and artists.
