F.I.N.D. – My Terrorism is better than Yours

Europe in times of change shows that the old continent has a lot of rebels’ blood in their veins. The social and economic crisis is creating despair and protest especially in the Southern countries. But as in any period, big drama makes great drama – at least on stage. Young, fresh plays from around Europe will be presented at The Festival of International New Drama F.I.N.D. at the Schaubühne this month. From March16th to 24th the stage will be taken over by directors, actors and writers from all over Europe to present their work in Berlin for the first time. Read our recommendations after the jump.

The Terrorist Ballroom

Greek theatre collective BLITZ is one of the most exciting new voices on the European theater scene. Their ongoing show Galaxy already made clear that this theater collective knows its way around. In their new show Terrorist Ballroom, a political revue tarned as a satiric dance ritual points out the incompatibility of different terrorist ideals. With this sensitive subject the piece could easily make a splash.

Hyperion. Letters of a Terrorist

In 1797 Hölderlin wrote his epistolary novel Hyperion, a radical poetic manifesto and yet, at the same time also a confession of political failure, which reflected the collapse of his own revolutionary ideals. Romeo Castellucci, founder of the legendary Italian theater collective Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio transforms Hölderlin’s lyrical prose into a radical and visually stunning performance piece. Not only is it a rare chance to see some good Italian theater in Berlin (it is a rare chance in general) but the minimalistic scenography promises a visual masterpiece.
