On the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Jewish Theatre Collaborative participated in a special site specific performance in Pioneer Square developed by the Berlin-based theater group Grotest Maru.
Grotest Maru (www.grotest-maru.de) is a Berlin based theatre group that creates theatre in public spaces and is inspired by visual, physical and object theatre.
Grotest created, together with the participants from Portland, a performance which speaks in touching and intense theatrical images of the fall of the wall.
The special urban architecture of Pioneer Square was the basis for this site specific staging. Scenes and choreographies, including David Ehrlich's story Green Island performed by JTC actors were interwoven with contemporary, electronic music and will lead the audience into a poetic image-based world.
