Fidicinstraße 2, 10965 Berlin

In its poetic and musical reading SCHATTEN SAMMELN, the theater ensemble PAPILLONS connects with the poems of its protagonists which express the worlds of experience of people in old age, some of whom are suffering from dementia. Inspired by the lyrical work of the poet Aldona Gustas, a roommate, and accompanied by the sounds of the viola played by the musician Mike Flemming, poetic miniatures are created that seem to have disappeared behind the veil of forgetting. Rhyming or also not rhyming, an inner world is allowed to speak, at times dramatic and then again full of humor.


A continuously accessible, step-free and level access (incl. curb ramp) from the street to the building and to the event area with a width of at least 150 cm is available. Barrier-free parking spaces and sanitary facilities are also available. Space for wheelchairs or walkers is provided in the event hall/area and there is the possibility of special suitable seat reservation and/or to enter the hall ahead of time.
