Theater from Buenos Aires in Berlin


Berliner Festspiele is opening the new international festival “Foreign Affairs,” which will be showcasing contemporary performing arts from 28 September to 26 October 2012, with a continent-spanning production by the Argentinean author, actor, and director Federico León. In the “Las Multitudes” project, 108 actors from Berlin and 13 from Argentina come together in the search for community, their own individuality, and identity in the delicate balance between the individual and the collective. Discussions with the director add another dimension to the performance. The film “Estrellas,” by Federico León and Marcos Martínez, will also be shown. “Foreign Affairs” lets artists working in theater, dance, fine arts, and film in different regions of the world meet in Berlin for the first time in the fall of 2012.
