Heaven in Berlin

Live music, choreography and promenade performance combine to capture the spirit of Berlin in the 1980s: a city at the front line of the Cold War and a hotbed of artistic exploration. 'Heaven in Berlin is a play with live music about families, freedom and the supernatural, performed in Testbed1, a large non-theatre space in Battersea. Loosely based on The Tempest, the island city of Berlin is the setting of a story of exile, parents and children, domination of the weak and liberation through beauty and faith in strange magic. The production is both domestic and epic in scope. Family relationships form the core of the drama but through the use of music, choreography and wide open space, we will move beyond a base of simple naturalism into a heightened performance state that is decisively theatrical.'
