What This Berlin Life is all about…

Ecstatic, sexy, poor, decadent, entertaining, real, funny, sad – there are so many adjectives to describe Berlin. But what is life in Berlin really like? Especially when you are from another country? This Berlin Life wants to take you on a tour to the Berlin which opens up only to those who came here from abroad. Be it from the United States, Canada, France, England, Paraguay or Passau – we believe that everybody has his own story about life in Berlin which is worth sharing with others. Starting November (exact dates TBA) we will put up a show in the (place TBA) where the funniest, saddest and most Berlin stories will be presented. Best of it all, one of those stories could be yours! Just submit your story to us via email and if our jury picks it, we will include it in one of the TBL evenings to come. You may even tell the story yourself (or have it told by a professional actor). Of course there will be professional guidance by Bert and Jan (both being experienced theatre directors). But that’s not all: we will also start a This Berlin Life podcast where stories read will be made available to a greater public via the internet. Interested? Then send us your story via email to and we will contact you for details.

Hope to read from you soon!

Bert and Jan
