Berlin theatre hoping for curtains up in pilot project

After an enforced break of over half a year, theatre is being performed indoors again in the German capital.

A pilot project to put on performances during the pandemic went ahead on Wednesday evening with the world premiere of Rene Pollesch’s “Goodyear” at the Deutsches Theater.

Audience members had to take a coronavirus test in advance, wear FFP2 masks and keep their distance from one another.

There have been only a few test performances at Berlin venues in the last seven months during the lockdown.

Pollesch’s play – a tale of acting and sex, racing widows and smoking – is the first of several events planned in the period until the beginning of June.

The aim is to prepare the cultural institutions for a broad reopening. This involves, for example, checking how to verify audience members’ vaccination certificates.
