WELCOME

Berlin has a rich and colorful scene at mime theater and physical theater. Pantomaniacs makes the scene a bit more, more slanting and more diverse. We invite nine international performances of the best artists and ensembles. Furthermore, we host workshops, seminars, and a big final gala. There are performances for children and families and also performances which are certainly not for children.

YOUR HOST

Eric Wilcox, Jan Romberg and Lukasz Szydlik form the core organization team. This is already international, because the members come from the USA, Germany and Poland. The extended team also includes Radim Vizvary from the Czech Republic. Together, we provide program design, organization, technology and the bureaucratic backbone.

ACUD Theater Veteranenstraße 21 Berlin Mime Centrum Berlin of the International Theater Institute (ITI), German site Mariannenpl. 2 Berlin
MMR (USA / POL/ DE): Under the dark moon "Mondgestalten" / „Under the dark moon“ is a silent theater that lets you forget the space and the time and expand your imagination. The performance is kafkaesk, does not hide and criticizes. The actors show and do right in front of their eyes how all politics have a timeless, existentialist humanity that is hard. Our reality is made of work and steel, but has its own aesthetics. further information march 17 2017 8pm

PERFORMANCES

Radim Vizvary (CZ): SOLO From the classic mime to butoh, from slapstick to the contemporary pantomime theater - Radim Vizvary, shows mime  in a modern, shape, pure and with relevance. And although he takes the influences of different styles, he always goes his own way. 10.&11.März 2017 20:00
Teatro della Bottega  (IT): Happy times (family performance) From the most famous Charlie Chaplin’s movies a story  of a man looking for happiness. A  tramp  with  a  suitcase  starts  his  journey  across  different moments of the day and different moments of life showing that sometimes what seems impossible can be possible if we are able to follow our dreams. further information march 11 4 pm
Undercreative (INT): Human Revolutions The stages Mimenbühne Dresden, Mime Prag and Bottega from Rome, as well as the Parada Romania have teamed up in a project to work out a common vision. A classic heroic story is told, however, in the Zille-Milleu, so that it becomes very grotesque. The concept deals with special personalities of European history and their importance in modern times. We want to grasp what, for example, the romance of a Caspar David Friedrich conveys to us today. The surreal reality from the point of view of the Vaclav Havel is obvious. Leonrado da Vinci holds the whole story. march 12. 2017 7pm
Mimenstudio Dresden (DE): A respectable wedding (B. Brecht) director: Ralf Herzog actors: ensemble of Mimenstudio Dresden piano and singing: Bürge Terlan and Claudia Gräf The respectable wedding is a one-act written by Bertolt Brecht. Ralf Herzog has "deleted" all the texts As soon as the family knew the boyfriend of the bride, a child was born. In a hurry they must be married. The bridefather tells embarrassing and inappropriate anecdotes, the aunt provokes a pie battle. It is comedically showcased how the wedding, which was supposed to be the most beautiful day in the life of a bride, becomes a farce from the idol of the petty bourgeoisie. further information march 16 2017 8pm
MMR (USA/DE): Pronk (family performance)  "Pronk"  is  a  wordless  and  funny  performance  which  is  full  of action  and  fantasy.   It  tells  the  story  of  a  young  boy,  Pronk,  who struggles  with  his  adult  antagonist.  The  poor  boy  does  not  own anything  but  has  made  a  puppet  for  his  own  pleasure  and  in  his fantasy  the   puppet   has   a   special   power   and   is   able   to   controll  other   people.  “Pronk”   is   joyful   to   watch   for   both   children   and   adults.   But   our  young   friends   will   for   sure   more   identify   with   the   smiling   child  on stage. march 12 2017 11am

MimeClub (CZ): Heydrich Reinhard Heydrich: the ideal image of an SS leader, cold-hearted manager and callous executioner. A hatchet man, but also an excellent swordsman and virtuoso violinist. He put hisexceptional talents at the service of an inhuman ideology and intoxicated himself with absolute power. The production is a powerful physical study of military sports exercises, elements of ballroom dance, patterns of movement in ecstatic rhythm and sharp cuts between the individual sequences. The result is an image of a key figure in the Nazi movement – of corruption, manipulation and the desire for destruction. Alexej Byček, director and actor in the production Heydrich, studied at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. march14 2017 9pm

MimeClub (CZ): Heydrich Reinhard Heydrich – Idealbild eines SS-Führers, gefühlskalter Manager und brutaler Vollstrecker. Ein Mann fürs Grobe, aber eben auch ein hervorragender Schwertkämpfer und virtuoser Geiger. Mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Begabungen stellte er sich in den Dienst einer menschenverachtenden Ideologie, um sich an der absoluten Macht zu berauschen. So entsteht das Bild einer Schlüsselfigur der nationalsozialistischen Bewegung zwischen Korruptheit, Manipulation und Zerstörungslust.
