Allee der Kosmonauten
by Sasha Waltz
main stage

Guest performance by Sasha Waltz & Guests

In 1996, Allee der Kosmonauten was the first premiere at the newly founded Sophiensæle in Berlin Mitte. Created at the cusp of a new epoch, the piece recounts an era of living together without an escape route. In a housing block in former East Berlin, feelings and movements of a three generation family build up dangerously around their living room couch. The uncomfortably comical exploration of this anxious space, crowded and colliding, triggers solutions at the limits of danceability.
