    FALLING | IN LOVE Grand Show

Who are You? You is young, full of passion and longing. But he doesn't fit into any templates. He finds no love in the petrified faces around him. When he is rejected again, You wishes only to sink into the ground.

Then the grey asphalt of civilisation shatters beneath his feet. And You falls into another reality.

There, in the hidden garden of love, he sees what he has never seen before. A surging sea of colours and beauty in all facets of our nature. The eternal human dream of a better world, it lives. Walled in under time-honoured norms. In the end, will a young, deaf poet find the words that will make man-made walls shake and love blossom?

"Falling in Love" bears the signature of Parisian star designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

Already in 2018, he designed the costumes at the Palace for the celebrated "The One Grand Show". This time, his creative work is deeper and more comprehensive: as visual design director, he lends his unmistakable visionary style & touch. As curator, he also brings in up-and-coming fashion designers whose work he loves. The fascination of great revues from the 1920s to the ultra-modern Grand Shows at the Palast also thrives on their lavish splendour, this not being able to get enough. The fact is: No production has ever sparkled and glittered to this extent in over a hundred years of the theatre's stage history.

That's what the new show "Falling in Love" at the Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin is all about:

Who are You? You is young, full of passion and longing. But he doesn't fit into any templates. He finds no love in the petrified faces around him. When he is rejected again, You wishes only to sink into the ground. Then the grey asphalt of civilisation shatters beneath his feet. And You falls into another reality. There, in the hidden garden of love, he sees what he has never seen before. A surging sea of colours and beauty in all facets of our nature. The eternal human dream of a better world, it lives. Walled in under time-honoured norms. In the end, will a young, deaf poet find the words that will make man-made walls shake and love blossom?
