Berlin Alexanderplatz is a production of Frank Castorf based on the production of the Schauspielhaus Zürich (2001) / Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in cooperation with spielzeiteuropa | Berliner Festspiele.

Freshly released from prison in 1920s Berlin, Franz Biberkopf wants to become an upstanding citizen. But before long, he is back on his old turf in the “Scheunenviertel” neighbourhood with its dives, small-time criminals and prostitutes, and is run over by a car. Seventy-five years after the publication of Alfred Döblin’s “Berlin Alexanderplatz”, Frank Castorf is staging his new version not far from the novel’s original settings, at a location charged with symbolism for the Berlin of today – the gutted Palast der Republik.
