Mauerschau (Nele Stuhler)
The Berlin Wall stood for 28 years. Nele Stuhler was born in East Berlin on the exact day the Berlin Wall was built in the exact year the Berlin Wall came down. Annual commemorations of the Berlin Wall have been part of her birthdays like cakes, candles and summer. She likes to read Christa Wolf, who wondered once: How does life come about? Nele asks herself the same thing.

A production by NeleStuhler in co-production with uniT Graz and SOPHIENSÆLE. Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds and the Heinz and Heide Dürr Foundation.
Nele Stuhler studied applied theater studies in Gießen, directing in Zurich and dramatic writing in Graz. In 2016, she received the Munich Prize for German Drama (Jury Award and Audience Award), the Ponto Performance Prize (with FUX) and was a participant in the International Forum at Theatertreffen. She realized her latest productions at Stadttheater Gießen (O Wand) and Sophiensaele Berlin (Mauerschau).
The Sophiensæle is one of the most important locations for the production of the independent arts in the German-speaking world. Artists from Berlin, as well as the national and international theater community are invited to produce and present their works here. They are selected on the basis of their artistic concepts, content and working methods. The theater is home to cultural discourse and a vast mix of artistic genres – from theater, dance and music to performance and visual art; which complement each other and enjoy a productive dialogue. Alongside many young artists searching for new theatrical languages and forms of expression, a number of established artists and companies have longstanding partnerships with the Sophiensæle.
