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,

Yours Dorothea Hartmann, Artistic Director, Tischlerei

Studio performances

Schedule
World premiere on 8 June 2021
The Making of Blond ... A scenic installation
Who is calling the shots here? Who is being listened to? Why are we what we are? And how do roles emerge - on and off stage? What is real, what is projection? A huge screen serves as a projection surface for "blonde" cliché images of femininity - and is immediately torn down after the rage monologue by author and performer Gesine Danckwart ... also with Burkhard Ulrich, Jörg Schörner a. o.

About the performance

For the premiere of THE MAKING OF BLOND on 8 June
Dr Takt on Salome's finale scene
THE MAKING OF BLOND cites a quote from the closing monologue in Salome that epitomises the masculine projection of feminine eroticism in a transitional area between mania and rapture. Strauss transgresses harmonious boundaries by composing this out. Such is the case in the measures before Salome's breakthrough in "her" key of C sharp measure at figure 359 ... But listen for yourself!

Special guest in AMBUSHED FROM BEHIND
Listen to the playlist of Nils Ostendorf
As a musician I always remember where I was and when it was that I heard an amazing piece of music for the first time. A friend in New York introduced me to the music of Morton Feldman. Listening to the music suspending time and space in the midst of that teeming city had an incredibly powerful effect on me. I first heard Luc Ferrari on the car radio at night. That was like IMAX for the ears... says Nils Ostendorf. The late-night performance of DAS RHEINGOLD will take place on 8 January 2022.

1st Jazz Festival on the parking deck on 4 June 2021
Heart of Darkness
»Heart of Darkness« is not actually operatic material; with its stream-of-consciousness style of narration it is often called a journey into the interior. One thing that made the abridging process easier was that the story is carried forward not just by the text but also by the music that Manfred Honetschläger composed specially for the evening. There’s an anarchical quality to his jazz. His music is a fine rendition of the jolt delivered by Conrad’s story."
