In 1996, »Allee der Kosmonauten« was the first premiere at the newly founded Sophiensæle in Berlin Mitte. In 2019 it will celebrate its 150th performance at the Volksbühne Berlin. Created at the cusp of a new epoch, the piece recounts an era of living together without an escape route. In a housing block in former East Berlin, feelings and movements of a three generation family build up dangerously around their living room couch. The uncomfortably comical exploration of this anxious space, crowded and colliding, triggers solutions at the limits of danceability.
