The Sophiensæle are one of the most important production and performance venues for the independent performing arts in the German-speaking regions. A strong focus is on Berlin-based artists, independent groups and the promotion of young talent. The works of artists from the fields of performance, dance, theatre, music theatre and visual arts as well as discursive formats complement each other equally in the programme. As a former meeting, training and festival venue, the changing history of the complex can still be felt in the architecture of the building, on the walls and ceilings of the rooms, and creates a unique setting for artistic productions and encounters.
