ADVENTURES AMIDST PALACES, CATHEDRALS AND THE MUSEUM ISLAND LUSTGARTEN — AN AUDIOWALK FROM RAUM+ZEIT
With the cold season approaching, it’s the perfect time for long walks in the golden light and evenings spent at the theater. If that sounds like your thing, then you’ll want to experience the audio walk from Raum+Zeit, which offers both at the same time. The Berlin collective’s theatrical productions have always brought audiences to unusual spaces, and for its latest piece – entitled Rendezvous – the setting is one of the most visited parts of Berlin: Museum Island. The work is the third in a series of performances that were created during the pandemic and which seek to reimagine the theater experience. This aim is reflected in the audio walk’s material, which was inspired by Terry Gilliam’s 90s sci-fi classic 12 Monkeys. You join fellow participants in a hunt for Patient Zero so you can prevent the impending outbreak of a virus. Beginning the 40 minute walk in pairs, you split from your companions before reuniting again later, with actress Bibiana Beglau given the role of your futuristic guide. It’s an exciting journey that shows the Berliner Dom, the Lustgarten and Museum Island in a new light. You can register for the walk with a partner or choose to go it alone. Who knows who you’ll meet?
