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

Premiere on 30 January 2020
The Business of Dreaming
The audio drama talks of dreams rooted in hard reality, of futility and tristesse, yet also of the power of thought and imagination. Blurring the dividing line between reality and dreams, Bachmann employs clear and filigree language to conjure up multiple images in the minds of her listeners. Russian composer Alexandra Filonenko has rendered these images in music, creating a new soundtrack for “The Business of Dreaming” that by turns complements and develops on the narration.
