Another one of Berlin's cooler theaters, the Sophiensaele is a great place to check out the Berlin performance scene. They have a clear commitment to contemporary/expiremental performance despite its antique facade and beautiful corridors. The curators are frequently challenging conventional theater practices by offering lots of opportunities for young artists and hosting festivals like 100 grad theater festival and Tanztage. They are also one of the hosts for one of Europe's biggest contemporary dance festivals- Tanz im August. The Sophiensaele also offers residency opportunities and are involved in co-productions with other theaters. Regardless of your aesthetic interests, Sophiensaele is definitely a theater worth checking out.
