Wandering Festival Center
From Wednesday to Saturday, the wandering festival center will be a guest of a different location within Berlin’s independent performing arts community each day: at Oyoun (Neukölln), at Theater unterm Dach (Prenzlauer Berg), at Circus Schatzinsel (Kreuzberg) and at Ballhaus Prinzenallee (Wedding). Oriented to the thematic points of focus and productions of these diverse production locations, the schedule of programming in the festival center illuminates a different aspect of the theme TOGETHER each day: How do we want to live together in the future? How could we work together? How do we want to grow old together?
From Wednesday to Friday, the wandering festival center will be open daily from 12:00 pm to midnight. Alongside the schedule of workshops and discourse events, there is also space here to relax amidst all of the hustle and bustle of the festival, meet people and spend time.
Each day with start with a discussion keynote speech on the day’s topic over the course of a shared lunch. In the various workshops, discussions and opportunities to exchange for all interested parties that follow, it is possible to engage more deeply with the thematic point of focus. Each day after attending the final production, everyone is invited to come together at the festival bar and bring the day to a close, other at the festival center itself or in another location in the city. At 10:00 pm, our bar host Anton Rose will announce the “second-to-last call” and take a look back on the day that has just passed with illustrious guests.
On Saturday, the Day of Open House(s) is in the spotlight and the festival center will serve as a meeting place for everyone who wants to talk about newly discovered locations or locations that have been dear to them for quite some time. In the evening, the festival invites everyone, together with Ballhaus Prinzenallee in Wedding, to its theater and garden. Somewhere between romantic rear courtyards and historic walls, everyone will come together once more on Saturday to close out the day during a happening over food, music and a drink.
