Two dancers wake up in a world of gymnastics benches. They begin to explore new spaces, together and on their own, strangers to each other and yet also close, face to face: BETWEEN SPACES – BETWEEN FACES. The search for a meaning in their everyday madness between loneliness and togetherness drives them on again and again, but their questions are only answered with ever new questions. So they finally leave behind what they once were, strip off their shells and throw them away, forgetting their own expectations and those of the others. They no longer play by rules that are not their own. And in the end, they smash their old world, and use the debris to build a path into something new.

To develop BETWEEN SPACES – BETWEEN FACES, the Initiative LUNA PARK e.V. worked with the choreographer Nikoleta Koutitsa who was educated at the National School of Dance in Athens and at DANCE START UP in Bologna. She has worked with the Hellenic Dance Company in New York and with Emanuel Gat at the 2016 Venice Biennale, among others. In 2017, she founded the KN Dance Group with Karolina Theleriti, whose choreographic works and video dance films were presented at festivals in Greece and abroad. Nikoleta Koutitsa has lived in Berlin since 2019, where she is regularly involved in LUNA PARK’s productions and educational projects in addition to her own artistic work as a dance artist.

Production and funding

BETWEEN SPACES – BETWEEN FACES is a production by LUNA PARK, Nikoleta Koutitsa and Kosmas Kosmopoulos in collaboration with Gesundbrunnen-Grundschule, supported as part of the “tanz(t)räume” project, funded by TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund and co-financed by the Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion, and supported as part of the project “tanz(t)räume in 2024”, funded by the urban development program Sozialer Zusammenhalt via the project fund of QM Badstraße.

LUNA PARK, founded in 2002 as an initiative of independent artists, has been realizing contemporary dance productions with performances in Germany and abroad, diverse extracurricular artistic education projects for children, teenagers and young adults and international exchange and encounter programmes for young dance professionals and dance education specialists for over 20 years. Locally, LUNA PARK is primarily active in Berlin-Wedding. In 2019, LUNA PARK institutionalized itself at Gesundbrunnen Primary School as the non-profit association Initiative LUNA PARK e.V. in order to open up the school as a cultural, meeting and production space for contemporary dance. The “tanz(t)räume” project, funded by TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund, plays a special role in the realization of this project, with which the Initiative LUNA PARK has been offering young dance professionals the opportunity to develop and present their own performative projects as part of an artist residency since 2022. BETWEEN SPACES – BETWEEN FACES was created in this context.
