Sandtheater Berlin: Tobi recommends unique sand painting shows in Berlin

Sandtheater Berlin offers shows regularly here and thrills its guests. Last weekend I also visited a production and watched a show called „Berlin, ick liebe Dir!“-A tribute to Berlin.

The show: Berlin in the Course of Time

The show takes place in a cozy theater room with free seating. An elegantly dressed sandartist is standing at a lectern during the entire show, which is covered with tons of sand. Everything is transferred to a huge screen.

The play revolves around Berlin and the moving history of the metropolis. The sandartist creates with her bare fingers detailed images of the Wilhelmina era, Berlin´s glorious salon culture and of course, the golden 20s in the fine sand in front of her. Each picture is accompanied by typical music of its epoch; a song by Marlene Dietrich ensures a good mood right at the beginning.

Emotional journey through Berlin

With only a few gestures the artist leads the viewers a few more decades, about the Nazi era and the reconstruction of the German capital to the construction of the Berlin Wall. As the original voice of Kennedy accompanies the painting, I get goose bumps.

Of course, Berlin's world-famous attractions get their moments too. The popular TV Tower, Olympic Stadium and Victory Column are painted into the sand one by one. I enjoy the songs of Berlin musicians such as Harald Juhnke and Roger Cicero which are played in the background.

A must for visitors to Berlin

Tobi says … Sand painting is a fascinating art form and a great alternative to cinema and Co. A visit here is worthwhile in any case.

Of course, Berlin is always worth a trip. However, the German capital offers some very special queer highlights every year. Up to the event, thousands of gay visitors and members of the LGBT community come to Berlin to enjoy and celebrate together.
