The Volksbühne Berlin’s programme for February 2018

Catalan film and theatre director Albert Serra makes a return to the stage with the highly anticipated world premiere of Liberté on 22 February. Known for his intense and controversial portraits of Don Quixote, Hitler, Goethe and most recently King Louis XIV (in La Mort de Louis XIV with Jean-Pierre Léaud), he sets this story in an enticing, utopian 18th Century. Right before the revolution, a group of French freethinkers comes together to export libertinage to Germany. With Helmut Berger, Ingrid Caven, Anne Tismer and Jeanette Spassova, among others.

Other new events in February: 10000 Gestures by Boris Charmatz, which the Guardian just named the best dance production in 2017, on the main stage at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz for the first time after its Tempelhof debut; Health and Safety, Calla Henkel und Max Pitegoff's second premiere in the Grüner Salon; the world premiere of Left to tell, the first collaboration between Tim Etchells (Forced Entertainment) and pianist Marino Formenti, both live in the 3. Stock and online on Volksbühne Fullscreen; P14's premiere of Betrunken am Highway (Drunk on the Highway) based on Frank Wedekind's Franziska; Swans founder Michael Gira's solo performance on the main stage; as well as a projection on the Volksbühne facade of Michael Schmidt and Einar Schleef’s book and photography project Waffenruhe (Ceasefire) every evening in February.
