Introduction to the project '25 Jahre Mauerfall' before Daniel Brunet's B_Tour 'The Berlin Circle Audio Walk'

After the Fall of the Wall, noted US playwright Charles Mee wrote 'Berlin Circle', a play which takes a decidedly satirical look at the end of East Germany. Starting at the Berliner Ensemble, this walking tour offers a look at the real locations in the play. It is the first part of a series of tours exploring artistically the consequences of the Wende: Daniel Brunet himself introduces the project before the tour begins.

About the festival:

B_Tour

Taking a B_Tour is like going on an adventure in your most familiar environment. B_Tours utilize this hybrid form of art to provide locals with a new perspective of their city and enable them to be inspired by it. The festival brings citizens and artists together in the exploration of the city through these artistic guided tours. In 2012 the idea of establishing a festival which explores the format of guided tours as an artistic strategy emerged. The first edition of B_Tour Festival took place in Berlin in summer 2013. This year the festival takes place between August 8-10. It will be accompanied for the first time by a satellite festival in Belgrade, Serbia.

About the tour:

The Berlin Circle Audio Walk

On November 9, 1989, the world will mark the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall and with it the beginning of the end of the so-called Cold War between the capitalist west and communist east, ensuring the dominance of our current globalized market economy. A quarter of a century later, what does all this mean? Ten years after the Fall of the Wall, noted US playwright and historian Charles Mee wrote Berlin Circle, a play which takes a decidedly satirical look at the end of East Germany and the western feeding frenzy that descended upon the former state property. Offered in collaboration with English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center, this tour offers both a look at the real locations in the play (accompanied by binaural audio recordings of actors performing scenes at these locations) as well as an introduction to ETB | IPAC's larger project 25 Jahre Mauerfall or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Ossis/Wessis.
