De Janeiro - ein Punk ertrinkt in Weißensee (Reaktionsraum e.V.)
Rio is an original character from Berlin-Weißensee. In his biography, he covers socialism, the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the free economy. He’s passionate about music, theater and beer. The life of Rio is an eccentric one and an exemplary one. In a combination of biographical passages, text and punk music, this evening of theater dives into a life between the systems.

ReAktionsraum is an independent theater collective with artists from Berlin and Thuringia. ReAktionsraum is not dedicated to a specific genre of art or culture; instead, it seeks to form a network composed of different directions. The focus of the theatrical work with an ensemble that is constantly changing is the annual production of a new theater piece.
The Brotfabrik Bühne (Bread Factory Theater) in the Weißensee district of Berlin is an independent venue for touring shows and co-productions from Berlin's independent performing arts community as well as national and international groups. The schedule of programming, comprising around 300 performances a year, presents a diverse range of forms and genres from plays, performance, dance and musical theater to improvisation, puppet and object theater. Young artists and groups regularly perform in the 40-80 seat auditorium alongside established theater makers. Another focus of the schedule of programming is the productions for children.
