RESTRAINT (Lina Gómez)
Everything shakes with Lina Gómez and her dance and percussion duo. Movement and music form the coordinates for a space in which the audience must make its way between the condensed explosions and create a framework in order evaluate what was seen. Driven by rhythm, the dancer also continuously points out a path to her limits – and back away from them as well.

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.
