a play from Platypus Theater

Between the Lines is about three outdated school books, which escape being thrown away by traveling in the suitcase of one of the school's teachers on her summer holiday to the USA. These books have the special ability of being able to change into humans when they want to. Until now, however, they have only spent a minimal amount of time as humans - hanging out in the school library during summer holidays. In the USA, they will take on the challenge of living as humans - of becoming human. It is both an awkward and exciting journey, in which they discover human feelings, love, slang, music and more. 

For ages 12+

Solo on the move #1 – Hungry Hearts
June 11-13 (Thurs. - Sat.), 2015

Solo on the move #1 – Hungry Hearts presents the interwoven solos of four female performing artists (Liz Erber, María Ferrara,
Jenny Haack, Meltem Nil), who use dance, voice, text and objects.
The artist’s “hungry heart”, or drive to perform, is the central focus of our research, and provides the base-beat, or impulse, to our movement. Each artist develops her own unique body-poetry through ever-evolving movement, investigations of space, twists of humour, voice, sound and text. From the seeming “emptiness” of space arise ephemeral images and characters.
And, from the four solos emerges a collective hungry heart.

The piece is always NEW, being composed and created in each performance. Just as the fingerprint of every human is unique, so are the components (dance, movement, speech, text and sound) of each solo that we make.

Every body
A duet by and with Liz Erber and Andrew Wass
9. June 2014
Expat Expo 2014
English Theatre Berlin⎢International Performing Arts Center

Every Body, a dance performance in experiential anatomy: We all possess a body but for most people it is not so often that one thinks about the contents, structure, function, or anatomy of this body (not at least, until something goes wrong or something stops functioning properly...we are not going to go there.) In this performance we bring attention to the body each of us is inhabiting, and invite audience members to tune in to the experience of their body through focus, touch and movement. In this way we bring attention not only to the outer performance space that we the performers are inhabiting, but the vast inner space of each and every individual. Every Body is a performance of anatomy and anatomical function (i.e Breath, circulation, fascia.) It is a performance of connecting anatomies expressed through dance, sound and words. Andrew and Liz connect with one another and directly with the audience.

„10 times 6” heißt: 10 Stücke, keines länger als 6 Minuten, an einem Abend.
Die Reihe gibt 10 Tänzern, Choreografen, Regisseuren... die Möglichkeit, in einem einfach gestalteten Rahmen ihre Werke zu zeigen. Zum 11. Performer wird dabei der Lichtdesigner, denn nach exakt 6 Minuten geht das Licht aus. Was dann nicht gesagt bzw. getanzt wurde, bleibt im Dunkeln...
"10 times 6" means: 10 pieces, each of them 6 minutes maximum in one evening. The performance series offers upcoming choreographers, dancers, directors the possibility to present their current works in a simple space. The lighting designer becomes the eleventh performer, when the light is switched off after six minutes. Everything, that has not been shown by then, stays in the dark...

Tip of the Iceberg:
the story of an American obsession 
Tip of the Iceberg is a multi-media play, with an absurdist and darkly humorous look at modern American life. Through text, movement, video and music we glimpse into the lives of three individuals, who are seemingly trapped by their own limited views of the world. One individual, WOMAN, is attempting to dream her way out. Central to our characters' lives is the story of Iceberg lettuce - a story of modern American food (exported to the world), monoculture, culture shaping, marketing, modern economic colonialism, and more. Juxtaposed to this fictional story is the current reality of the actors' lives in Berlin.

Moving into Writing <--> Writing into Moving
OCT 23-24, 11-17:00
COST: 89 Euro both days/ 49 Euro one day



In this intensive we create an intimate and safe space for the exploration of body/movement, writing and the intersection of the two. Our bodies contain a wealth of memory, images, poems, stories, narratives...we will tap into these! We begin with a physical warm-up, followed by a writing warm-up. Body-movement explorations derived from anatomy, imagery and our own impulses, serve as a jumping off point for our writing. From our writing we return to body/movement, and back and forth. We will work individually, in partners and may possibly share our work in group scores involving reading, movement and writing. Writing-wise we will work with free writing, sound-driven writing, a basic verse structure and prose.

The structures we will explore are great for developing: body-awareness, a unique voice, writing, performance work, choreography.
