The Deutsches Theater Berlin is a place for joint reflection: the lecture and discussion series Außer Sich (Beside Myself) discusses aspects of the theme of the season: what fears and hopes are related to "being beside oneself"? And what do discussions on this subject in contemporary political and philosophical discourses mean when they use this term?
Müllersalon / Popsalon / Football Salon
It is helpful, not only in this respect, to refer to Heiner Müller: his texts, theses and reception are the subject of the Müllersalon, which the International Heiner Müller Society organises at regular intervals in cooperation with the Deutsches Theater. In Popsalon, Tobi Müller and Jens Balzer watch and discuss music videos together with their guests in an enlightening, thought-provoking and entertaining way. At the Football Salon Christoph Biermann (11Freunde) debates with his guests about the present and future of the world’s most beautiful game.

Video snippets presented by Kuttner
Every video evening has two elements. It consists of a) the videos and b) Kuttner, the man who selects them in advance for the audience, edits them and finally presents them on stage. Every one of these evenings is different. Because each has its own motto, its own theme. Sometimes it’s about fundamental issues such as love, sex, war, children, football, cars; but sometimes it deals with topics like German pop music as a democratising force, the political aptitude of psychoactive cactuses from Central America, Mick Jagger’s aesthetic faux pas, the potential for aggression caused by the German foreign minister’s ringtone, or the question of what would make a good gift for a Communist party secretary general.

Limited Edition is the debut format at the Deutsches Theater Berlin. Assistant directors make their production debut in the box in cooperation with assistants from the fields of costume design, stage design and dramaturgy. The premiere will be followed - as the English title already says - by a limited number of performances.
Consistently, Frei-Boxen (Free-Boxing) offers the Deutsches Theater ensemble and the assistant directors a free space for studio productions, performances and creative experiments in the box.
