Studio2 - the Rehearsal Studio

A 165 sqm bright room, the STUDIO2 is a space for working, rehearsals and workshops, an area for different formats of practical work and the examination of dance and theatre practises. The room is open for different formats from the field of dance and theatre. The studio invites performers to deal with different ways of working and representing movement in the performing arts and to trace the fundamentals of the actor's physical presence in depth.

STUDIO2 is also the room of the daily public movement training which started 15 years ago at the former mime centrum berlin. The daily routine, designed as a qualifying training for performers of all genres, is led by instructors coming from different fields of the movement based theatre.

Evening courses and laboratories, which regularily take place in the studio, pose the opportunity for a concentrated long-term examination of different topics and methodological approaches of movement in dance and theatre, for research and communication.

In addition to these two working formats, the studio holds a wide range of possibilities for individual and group work in rehearsals, workshops, research processes, continuing education and collaborative work.
Although the studio offers good working conditions for smaller public formats such as showings, previews or lectures, STUDIO2 is not open for guest performances.
