DIE SPALTER are a free Berlin-based theatre collective. Their work can be described as a powerful reckoning with Western society and its execution of power dynamics in the private sphere, as well as in institutions and throughout history. They look for butterflies on battlefields, examine the destroyed subject and and redefine it from an existential point of view. Their acting is committed to strike, physically challenging and hung up on utopias. They understand their work as a contribution to breaking free from routines and habits while pinpointing at power dynamics. They combine intimate theatre with post theatrical gesture. They evoke new mental spaces by existentially negotiating wishes and desires of antiquated concepts.
