DorkyPark: Open for Everything

  • Contemporary and experimental

The Argentinian choreographer Constanza Macras (The Favorite), now based in Berlin, turns her creative eye on the migratory Romani people in a new work for 19 dancers and five musicians. Presented as part of BAM's Next Wave Festival, the piece draws on research she conducted in Central Europe, and includes several nonprofessional Romani performers.


  • Shakespeare

The German director Thomas Ostermeier, renowned for his outré Regietheater deconstructions of classic works, returns to BAM's Next Wave festival with his company, Schaubühne Berlin, to spatter mud and glitter on Shakespeare's talky tragedy, where a ghost and a prince meet and everyone ends in mincemeat. As in Ostermeier's wild and unforgettable 2017 Richard III, Lars Eidinger plays the title role in a German translation by Marius von Mayenburg.
