Artistic Workshops: Creating “Uninhabited Island”

Beginning on November 4, the international artistic team of "The City Ghettos of Today" from Poland, Italy, Finland and France together with the local partners English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts and OnElf Theater and Performance Collective invited an heterogeneous group of participants based in Berlin, old and new Berliners, from Germany and from beyond, to work and reflect on the changing living and social conditions in the city. Starting from the stories and biography of the participants as a representative “sample” of contemporary Berliners and in a provocative relation with one another, a collective, controversial and complex portrait of the city  created and strategies and desires for a common future had been rehearsed.
