Wed 10.11.2021 Staatsballett Berlin

Half Life at Kraftwerk Berlin

In January 2022, the Staatsballett Berlin will be part of a series of live performances titled 'Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar: Love is Life' at Kraftwerk Berlin. Presented by the Berlin art platform LAS (Light Art Space), the Staatsballett Berlin is joined by the ensemble tanzmainz and the L-E-V Dance Company.

The three-part programme features the Berlin premiere of SOUL CHAIN, a production by tanzmainz, the Staatstheater Mainz's contemporary dance ensemble, which won the German Theatre Prize DER FAUST in 2018. HALF LIFE, a Staatsballett Berlin production, has been keeping audiences at the edges of their seats at the Komische Oper Berlin and the Deutsche Oper Berlin since 2018. Both works are complemented by LOV3, a trilogy uniquely for the L-E-V Dance Company, Eyal and Behar's ensemble, comprising OCD LOVE, LOVE CHAPTER 2 and CHAPTER 3: THE BRUTAL JOURNEY OF THE HEART.

All pieces will be adapted by Sharon Eyal to form a dialogue with the industrial architecture of Kraftwerk Berlin. Since the founding of the legendary next-door nightclub Tresor on the grounds of the former power station in the heart of Berlin in 1991, the venue has been a mainstay in the German capital's music and underground scene.

Tickets for all December 2021 events will be available from 12 November 2021 at lightartspace.org, with tickets to all other dates going on sale soon after. Corona policies based on the day of the event will apply.
