Living Apartment Together  is set at twilight in the city. A group of spectators in headphones watch the side wall of an apartment block in fascination. In six apartments, tableaux unfurl that highlight the poignant beauty of our everyday existence.

As if by magic, director Yves Degryse and BERLIN, house artist at NTGent, open up the outer wall of an apartment block like a tin of sardines. The headphones put you momentarily in the midst of things, with the sense that you are eavesdropping from afar as the life of the city whirls around you.

‘BERLIN portrays reality like a painter: with just a little more colour, witty angles and a brushwork that betrays a critical undertone’
Knack Focus (BE)

Living Apartment Together  has its world premiere in Ghent and is the successor of The Making of Berlin, selected as one of the very best performances of 2022 by numerous media and still touring Europe today. The brand new performance of BERLIN is inspired by Georges Perec’s fascinating novel Life A User’s Manual.

Degryse interviewed people with an unusual story in different cities as a basis for the script. He developed these stories into screenplays in partnership with Angelo Tijssens who has worked as a screenwriter on films including Girl and Close by Lukas Dhont.

Living Apartment Together  is about turning points, invisible synchronicity and the realisation that every beginning is nothing more than a sequel.
