Ballhaus Prinzenallee

Prinzenallee 33, 13359 Berlin, Deutschland

Attempting to escape death with burning lungs – both physically as well as mentally. Only in our dreams do we have the chance to overcome our despair by endlessly running in circles. The Run: Refugee Rave brings artists from four different countries together and creates a shared language through movement, words, choreography and music. The artists share their own experiences of displacement and migration and open up a discussion with the audience.


The Ballhaus Prinzenallee is located in a typical Weddinger backyard. A continuous, step-free and level access (incl. curb ramp) from the street to the building and to the event area of a width of at least 150 cm is available. Barrier-free sanitary facilities are also available, but there are no barrier-free parking spaces. There is space for wheelchairs or walkers in the event hall/area and there is a possibility of special suitable seat reservation and/or entering the hall ahead of time.

The performance is in Ukrainian, Romanian, Italian, Russian. There are surtitles in English (June 2) and German (June 1).
