Grüner Salon: premiere of Today Is Tomorrow on 26 April 2018

We’re delighted to invite you to the world premiere of Today Is Tomorrow on 26 April 2018. Directed by Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff for the Grüner Salon, it’s the third in this season’s four-part series, which playfully traces the rise and fall of a city.

Today Is Tomorrow is set in a TV station’s newsroom in an alternative present in which women can communicate with animals. An election is coming up and the People-First and Globe-Of-the-Future parties reflect fundamentally different world views. Politicians have their say, there’s flirting and fighting. In the end, it’s about life and death in a loud and chaotic world.

Berlin-based artists Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff are shaping the programme in the Volksbühne Berlin’s Grüner Salon this season with their productions, concerts, performances and bar evenings. Their play series has been developed in collaboration with a fixed ensemble of actors and written in rapid succession to respond to the shifting mood and what’s happening at the Volksbühne, around Berlin, and beyond. The first installment in the series, News Crime Sports, was set on a cruise ship that went missing at sea. The second production, Health & Safety, recounted the friendship between an architecture school drop-out and the spirit of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, as they planned to burn down the reconstructed city palace. Today Is Tomorrow will be followed by a fourth and final play, Der Klang der Familie (The Sound of Family), to be written in the coming weeks and premiered in June.

More about Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff’s work, the play’s trailer, and up-to-date information about the Grüner Salon’s programme can all be found at, in their newsletter and on the Volksbühne’s website.
