How can bodies and spaces inscribe themselves into each other? How can a space become a medium or an agent for stories and histories? And what positions does an embodied story or history take towards written history? These questions stand at the core of the Site Specific Performance and the artistic method 'Body Mapping Lab’. After the performative expedition, we will talk with the artists about their exploration, about the Site Specific Performance and the 'Body Mapping Lab’.

Free admission including free entrance to the discussion directly through Theater Scoutings! Meeting point: In front of the entrance to Teufelsberg.

About the venue


Without a doubt, the Teufelsberg (Devil Mountain) has become a contested magnet for Berlin’s recent tourism hype. The abandoned radar station, the unique view from the highest place in Berlin and the traces of a whole generation of street artists are but a few of the reasons for this attraction. At the Teufelsberg alternative Berlin seems even more alternative and has kept its occult side. However, most visitors are unaware of the singular history of the place. Not only, has the Teufelsberg been a radar station in Cold War, it is also a result from WWII as it mainly consists of debris from the bombing of Berlin. While the mountain after the fall of the wall saw a row of failed and unfinished development initiatives, it also became a place for experiments in alternative living practices. Not just the tourists, but also all kinds of artists are looking for old and new utopias.

About the Site Specific Performance

Teufelsberg calling

Nathalie Fari brings her workshop format 'Body Mapping Lab' to Teufelsberg. Together with the autor and media theorist Rafael Dernbach, they are curating an expedition to a former US surveillance station. With a group of artistic researchers, they explore Teufelsberg and investigate the possibilities of an embodied history. During the sessions at Teufelsberg the site is used for different writing workshops and embodied exercises. 'Teufelsberg calling' assembles the results from these workshops into a dramaturgy and presents a group site specific performance at Teufelsberg.
