When Berlin's famous Berlin Ensemble Theater Company reopens in September, the appearance of the auditorium will be very different from before the coronavirus pandemic. In order to comply with the rules of social distancing, the historic building Theatre am Schiffbauerdamm where the theatre company performed will have only 200 of its usual 700 seats.

Oliver Reese, the artistic director of the Berlin Song and Dance Ensemble, called the temporary seating arrangement a "creative solution" that allows theater audiences to enter their seats and maintain a safe distance from others. Reese wrote in an email: "This is not only our main mission and obligation as a public theater, but also our sincere wish to return to the stage." "We all desire normality. But I am absolutely sure that our The ensemble can at least make the energy performance of 200 and 700 people the same."

The theatre was founded in 1892 and has been the seat of Bertolt Brecht’s famous theatre company since 1954.

Reese wrote: “I’m pretty sure that this will connect actors and audiences in different ways, thereby creating a new intimacy between the auditorium and the stage.”
