spielzeit’europa

Every year spielzeit’europa brings unusual and high-quality theatre and dance productions to the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. The programme has initiated and sponsored productions by such renowned artists as Heiner Goebbels, Dimiter Gotscheff, Alvis Hermanis, Robert Lepage, Christoph Marthaler and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and regularly acts as a production partner for important festivals, including Salzburger Festspiele, Wiener Festwochen, Festival d’Avignon and the Edinburgh International Festival. Apart from premières and coproductions spielzeit’europa offers exclusive guest performances by outstanding European directors and choreographers and their companies. Discussions, films and concerts complete the programme.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, spielzeit’europa presented the city with a very special gift: “The Berlin Reunion”. For four days, this open air theatrical spectacular by French street theatre company Royal de Luxe featuring two giant puppets moved two million people in the capital’s streets and squares and generated intense media interest: Images of this poetic fable about the Giants were seen all around the world.
