DEPARTURES / ARRIVALS (B.E.T. - Berlin Expat Theatre)
Departures/Arrivals is about migration, talking about a specific type of migrants: the young women who voluntarily choose to move, to find another life, to shape a destiny for themselves. Migrating in the Internet era makes it impossible to have a clean cut with your former life. You are in a new place but with a heavy baggage that puts at risk the integration in your new reality.

B.E.T. - Berlin Expat Theatre is a theater-oriented think tank”of eleven artists based in Berlin. B.E.T was founded by Alessandra Giuriola and Michele De Vita Conti in 2017 and its first production was Berlin Parade. The goal of our research, amongst other things, is trying to the direction the sudden and violent transformations that are happening in Berlin are pointing to. Utopia or dystopia?
ACUD Theater in Berlin's Mitte district has been a place for young, innovative and diverse theater since 1990, building bridges between acting, dance, performing art, clowning and puppetry. As an independent theater, it supports national and international theater pieces by young groups and solo artists. Each year, around 120 performances take place in the 70-seat theater, with 90% of them being new productions, Berlin premieres or world premieres.
