#1 Hide & Seek

A Musical Installation Performance by Young Refugees and Berliners (multilingual)

What is hidden between the visible and the invisible, the audible and the inaudible, behind languages, between play and bitter earnestness, solitude and cohesion, friends and strangers?

#1 Hide & Seek is the product of a 3-month-long creative journey and intensive work process. Through improvisation, a high degree of abstraction, and the support of five artists, refugees and young people from Berlin have created a musical stage performance.

Along the way they got to know each other. They grew together as a group and beyond themselves. While performing on stage, the young refugees and Berliners go on a search with the audience – through space and life.

#1 Hide & Seek is an artistic experiment with music and images – and a stroll through the Jewish Museum Berlin.

January saw the première of the theater installation – a musical experiment by ACADEMY Produktionshaus (ACADEMY Production House).

Supported by the Stiftung am Grunewald, the Heinz und Heide Dürr Foundation and in cooperation with the Jewish Museum Berlin, #1 Hide & Seek will be showing again in the Old Building at the Jewish Museum Berlin in May. Beforehand, the artists will rehearse on two weekends at the museum to familiarize themselves with the premises.

The stage performance is supported by the FRIENDS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM BERLIN in the U.S.
