As you know, we love interdisciplinary work blending different genres together, especially when this happens in unique places in Berlin. One new occasion to experience such a creative immersion is happening this weekend for 3 nights at the beautiful Delphi. The place has a unique history as it used to be a silent movie theater that opened in the 1920s and it was actually the last one of its kind that was ever built.
With Hecate House, a new independent genre-bending theater production written by Christopher Adams-Cohen and directed by James Darrah, the old silent movie theater will be transformed into an experimental experience that will stimulate all your senses. Led by an overarching narrative of a brother and sister who get caught in a storm in the Black Forrest and take shelter in an abandoned hunting lodge that is inhabited by a mysterious pair of twin sisters the audience gets invited to step into a responsive audio-visual landscape breaking the fourth wall of the performer/spectator experience. During the piece, you can enjoy live electronic music improvisations by Farah Hazim and Wissam Sader, as well as dance performances choreographed by Andrea Galad.
To be able to give you a bit of a preview we joined the first dress rehearsal and took some photos for you. The Hecate House premieres tonight, at Delphi with encore performances on Saturday and Sunday.
