It's Never Too Late (Andriana Seecker und Andreas Catjar (INSTITUTET))
A dancer and a composer switch professions. It´s never too late. Two swans. “Trans Europa Express” by Kraftwerk in an abandoned disco. The ghost of Juliette without Romeo under a sky of golden glitter and dust. Once in a lifetime. Don’t care about history. Just dream. Like if it was possible. Dance without shame. The performance deals with fear, childhood, dreams, ghosts and leaving safe territory.

INSTITUTET (SE) is a touring Swedish theater company based in Malmö and Berlin that works to create international alliances within the contemporary performing arts, focusing on critical thinking and an artistic approach to life. INSTITUTET deals with theatrical practices beyond representation and drama. The work has received several awards and continues to search for its own methodology.
Ballhaus Ost is a production space for independent theater, performance and dance. Located in the former celebration and assembly hall of a Berlin Free Church Community and 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 emerging members of the independent performing arts community. As an experimental stage for various forms of contemporary theater, Ballhaus Ost invites its audience to experience and discover new ways of artistic debates with today's reality of life. During the German Democratic Republic (GDR), before the venue was used as a theater, the ballroom was used as the Casion des Handwerks and became a pool hall and nightclub after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Ballhaus Ost was founded by the directors Uwe-Moritz Eichler, Philipp Reuter and the performer Anne Tismer in 2006. Daniel Schrader and Tina Pfurr have been the artistic directors since 2011.
