spielzeit’europa shows exceptional top-level theatre and dance productions in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. The season is one of Germany’s most significant production partners of large festivals like the Vienna Festwochen, Festival d’Avignon and the Edinburgh International Festival, and of renowned artists, such as Heiner Goebbels, Alvis Hermanis, Christoph Marthaler, Robert Lepage and many more. Alongside world premières and co-productions spielzeit’europa shows many exclusive guest productions, presenting outstanding actors in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.
The invited productions are accompanied by a busy programme of further events. Each year spielzeit'europa also commissions young fine artists to create an installation on the festival motto for the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. Monika Pormale’s photo installation EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT gained international acclaim – it showed couples embracing each other in the former West Berlin. For the 07/08 season Rudolf Bekic and Bernhard Resch have designed the installation PARADISE NOW, a fascinating game with floral forms and iridescent colours
