Berlin | Water myths

Theatre ANU transforms Tempelhofer Feld into a mystical water world. The visually stunning production tells stories of dreams, a night sea journey that tells of infertility, the water of life and the incompatibility of man and woman.
Whether the story of the mermaid Undine and her lover Hans or a completely unknown version of the Frog Prince, when night falls, the play begins:
A beautiful woman - half goddess, half toad - does her work on the stream of life. A fisherman consumes himself for love of his mermaid. A water woman appears behind a wall of 400 water glasses. Her movements are reflected in the water like chimeras. In a round dance of kaleidoscopic images, a girl dances in search of water, while her husband goes on a pilgrimage and a lamenting prince consort threatens to sink his silver ball in the well.

In the new poetic world of Theater ANU, whimsical characters cavort with their crazy, fantastic stories and ignite a nocturnal rush of images.

Distance requirement and hygiene rules
The event can only be attended if an FFP 2 mask is worn to cover the mouth and nose. It must be worn when leaving the theatre installation, when visiting the sanitary facilities and when the minimum distance (1.5m) to other visitors cannot be maintained unexpectedly during the event.

Data Protection in Corona Summer 2021
Due to the necessary chain of infection tracing required by the authorities, you are obliged to be able to identify yourself (identity card or passport). Theatre ANU is obliged to document the names, addresses and telephone numbers of visitors. These contact details will be deleted 4 weeks after the event.

THE WATER MYTHS will also take place in light rain (except thunderstorms, storms etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes and rainwear. Please refrain from using umbrellas. There are not always paved paths. Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. If the event has to be cancelled for weather reasons before one hour of the performance has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission to another performance of DIE WASSERMYTHEN, subject to availability.
