Shame (Marie Golüke)
Shame is an essential criterion within our idea of mortality. We have constructed it, raised it, allowed it thrive and now we follow its rules. For centuries. Shame can mean safety. But is that also freedom? Shamelessness is a provocation. But is that also freedom? Marie Golüke works as a performer in numerous contexts. Shame is her second original work.

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.
