Tischlerei (our studio):
Welcome to the Tischlerei!
“Encounters“ is not just the title of one of the areas of focus in the Tischlerei this season. Encounters also form a prominent part of our entire programme. In a former lifetime the Tischlerei was the workshop of the Deutsche Oper Berlin; now it is a space for experimental performances and installations, world premieres and works in progress. We embrace crossover, blend pop, rock, fine art, avant-garde and opera and explore themes centring on ‘the stranger’ and otherness in general. This regularly involves contacts between cultures leading to the generation of new forms of musical theatre. You are cordially invited to witness all these encounters close at hand.
Let us surprise you, Dorothea Hartmann, Art Director, Tischlerei

Our winter holiday laboratory in February 2020
Who tells you to do what?
60 children and teenagers spent a week exploring and mixing sounds, writing songs, founding bands and building instruments – assisted by a raft of artists. All culminated in a performance at which they presented their results.

Waldesruh Ein Zeltlager ohne Bäume – Mit Morton Feldman
Director Anna-Sophie Mahler and her team have used interviews with experts and scientists as the basis for their two-part evening of musical theatre. In the process the austere Tischlerei will morph into an imaginary wood, Romantic choral music and sylvan song material will be delivered in a campsite ambience and the audience will gain insights into fungal structures and the communications systems of trees.
