THE LAB following 'Ich kann nicht atmen'
Taking its cue from Václav Havel's essay 'The Power of the Powerless', the performance-lecture gives an insider's account - bitter and savagely satirical - of what it's like to live inside the scam that various lobbyists, eco-hypocrites and political pygmies have defined as energetische Modernisierung. THE LAB invites audiences to discover work-in-progress and discuss it directly with MC Jabber and Daniel Brunet.
THE LAB is the artist and audience development series at English Theatre Berlin. Founded by Daniel Brunet in 2003, it offers Berlin-based writers and performers an opportunity to share their work-in-progress with an audience and receive feedback in the form of a post-performance discussion.
You can now reserve tickets (8€) including free admission to the introduction directly through Theater Scoutings! (up to 1 day before the performance)

We are a proud member of Berlin’s freie Szene, the independent performing arts community, and are currently developing platforms to share our work within Germany and abroad. We consciously use theater and performance as living, discursive forms to bring artists and audiences into conversation with each other about our shared city and the greater world we live in.
About the performance-lecture
Ich kann nicht atmen
Taking its cue from Václav Havel's seminal 1978 essay The Power of the Powerless, the performance-lecture Ich kann nicht atmen [IKNA] gives an insider's account - bitter, hilarious and savagely satirical - of what it's like to live inside the immersive, sensurround scam that various lobbyists, eco-hypocrites and political pygmies have defined as energetische Modernisierung. The profit-led and undesired changes to one particular apartment building, for which the inhabitants ultimately pay, serves as an example of how the face of an entire capital city is being fundamentally and irrevocably altered for generations to come.
