HAROLD PINTER | THE CARETAKER

with Patrick Lanagan, Tomas Spencer and Jesse Inman | Directed by Günther Grosser | Set Design by Tomas Fitzpatrick | Costume Design by Jeannette Jürgens | Lighting Design by Tom Oliveira | Photo: David Baltzer | Opened in November 2005 | Second run in February 2007

Our production of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker was one of the last productions at Friends of Italian Opera, the cozy 50-seater venue we operated for 15 years, which was located across the courtyard from where we are now. Directed by Artistic Director Günther Grosser, it ran for a couple of weeks before we closed the old theater. At the new venue, designer Tomas Fitzpatrick enlarged his beautiful white-and-blue stage set to accommodate the much larger dimensions of our new home. "Sit down": for ten more nights, Jesse Inman as Ashton would begin the play with an awkward invitation to the homeless man Davies (or Bernard Jenkins? We never find out) played by Patrick Lanagan. Later, Tomas Spencer would join them and team up with his brother Ashton only to humiliate poor Davies. A few months before we revived our production of this late 1950s classic, Harold Pinter received the Nobel Prize for Literature.

ONLINE Binaural Experience | Ferodo Bridges

LIMITED RELEASE: Experience The White Plague: a binaural play for FREE here on this page or on the pages of all collaborating theatres on Thursday 17th of December at 19.30 UK time.

Ferodo Bridges CIC, Greenwich Theatre, Camberley Theatre, The Spring (Havant), Cranleigh Arts Centre and English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center and Landor Space present an immersive binaural experience developed from the play ‘The White Plague’ that can be experienced for FREE from the comfort of your home with just a pair of headphones.

10 years have passed since a fiercely contagious virus spread among a major city’s population, causing a mysterious white blindness and eventually, society’s collapse. Now five survivors come forward to tell a story they were not allowed to share before. A story of unprepared quarantine facilities and dehumanizing circumstances that drive citizens to expose the very brightest and darkest aspects of their human nature. A story of government negligence, isolation and persevering humanity.

This binaural experience places the audience in the middle of the action as a state-of-the-art sound design transports them to every location of the play and inside every character’s head. A timely and close look at social coherence, gender roles and the survival instincts of a society in crisis.

ECHTER BERLINER IHR NICHT !!!! F**K YOU

Directed and Devised by Daniel Brunet | With Lara Babalola, Daniel Brunet, Murat Dikenci, Lynn Femme , Ariel Nil Levy and Lara-Sophie Milagro | Dramaturgy by Lara-Sophie Milagro | Set and Costume Design by Tamar Ginati | Lighting Design by Christian Maith | Video Design and Media Coordination by Josephine Landertinger Forero | Sound Design and Composition by Natalia Lincoln | Assistant Direction by Joseph Wegmann | Regiehospitantin: Tanja Graubaum

ECHTER BERLINER !!!! IHR NICHT F**K YOU marked a lot of firsts: our first production to be funded by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds, our first in-house production after our reorientation as an international performing arts center and Daniel Brunet’s first production as Producing Artistic Director. A documentary theater piece exploring the differences between so-called “expats” and so-called “immigrants”, the production set the tone for a kind of sociopolitical approach to the performing arts we are still pursuing seven years later and was one of our first productions to bring in over 1,000 audience members (1,183 to be exact) in only ten performances.

30 years ago today, the first English-language production - Noodle Highway by Joy Cutler - opened at a 50-seat venue called Freunde der Italienischen Oper that had been founded by Bernd Hoffmeister and Martin Kamratowski five months earlier and later would become English Theatre Berlin. To celebrate this anniversary, we will post some of the highlights from our 30 years of programming on our social media channels starting with the very first show:

NOODLE HIGHWAY – A SPAGHETTI MIDWESTERN

By Joy Cutler | directed by Simon Newby | with Richard Nash, Xanthe Hall, Joy Cutler, Karen Luchini and Jack Montana | produced by Günther Grosser for Out To Lunch Theatre Company | Premiere: November 29, 1990 | Image: Boris Aljinovic

Noodle Highway became a huge hit with audiences, sold out most of its twelve performances and came back for another run a few months later before Out to Lunch premiered their second show, Ramona´s Headache, another Joy Cutler piece. Between 1990 and 2000, Out to Lunch (Joy Cutler, Günther Grosser and Simon Newby) produced more than a dozen shows, eleven of them at English Theatre Berlin.

I'm not your trophy

Exotic is warm and spicy. It is one letter away from erotic. It promises adventure. Exotic is somewhere far away and foreign. Exotic is strange, but also very appealing and desirable. It is always over there, not here; them, not us; you, never me. Exotic is dark and mysterious, but its threat is tamed and contained.

Don't miss Exotic Animal by Ming Poon December 3, 4 + 5. This is an online audience collaborative performance that takes place via the platform Zoom.

Ming Poon is a Berlin-based choreographer who began his career as professional dancer in 1993 and started to develop his choreographic practice in 2010. He creates choreographic interventions, where spectators are invited to exercise their agency to create change. His practice is influenced by Buddhist concept of interdependence and care, Judith Butler’s resistance in vulnerability, Augusto Boal’s theatre of the oppressed and Nicolas Bourriaud’s micro-utopias. Don't miss the opportunity to see his latest work, Exotic Animal, coming up December 3,4 & 5.

The exotic industry has become a big and lucrative market, offering goods and services ranging from food, fashion, music, books, health products, workshops, collectibles, antiques to cultural attractions, theme events, tourism and corporate branding. It has often been touted as a fun and light way to promote the appreciation and experience of foreign cultures. But is it as innocent as it appears? What lurks beneath its foreigner-friendly surface? The collaborative performance Exotic Animal (audience collaborative performance) invites the audience to see what it takes to create the ideal exotic look.

Expo Festival: the show must go on

"Despite the challenges in getting to opening night, Brunet says the festival will offer a vital release from the turmoil of the world outside, with several evenings close to selling out. “This is a unique festival that I think serves the community and the venue in pretty exceptional ways,” he says. “As long as it seems to be safe enough to do so, I think it's a good thing to be able to offer - art and culture are absolutely essential, even in times where it's difficult to realise physically.” - Daniel Brunet on the #2020expofestival in the Berliner Zeitung.
