Artist talk following 'Le Taste of Jean-Pierre' & 'Olympia! Olympia! Olympia!'

Two short pieces in one evening. Start with “Le Taste of Jean-Pierre,” a farcical romp for the macabre-minded. End with “Olympia! Olympia! Olympia!,” a campfire story, family myth, and rock concert all in one. The audience is invited to share their thoughts and impressions and to speak honestly to the artists.

The audience talk will be hosted after the show with each piece’s creators. As these are two works in progress, the creators will be looking for feedback about what works and what doesn’t, what’s clear and what’s confusing, what you would like to see more of or less of. The audience is invited to speak honestly and openly, as these two pieces are being prepared for touring in 2020.

Tickets (15€) including free admission to the artist talk are available at the door and at

About the venue

Theaterhaus Berlin Mitte

Theaterhaus Berlin Mitte has been the central production location and communication platform for independent performing artists in Berlin for 26 years. It was founded as Theaterprobenhaus on Rosenthaler Straße in 1992. The goal was to support independent theater makers by offering inexpensive rehearsal spaces. After a number of interim locations, Theaterhaus Berlin Mitte has been located on Wallstraße since 2009. 

About the performances

'Le Taste of Jean-Pierre' & 'Olympia! Olympia! Olympia!'

"Olympia! Olympia! Olympia!” is a campfire concert about personal myth, stories that are more true than real, and leaving your children in the woods. Created by Claire Kaplan with musical performance by Warren Wernick and Martin Gutfeldt, this new devised piece invites you, with rock music, folktales, family history, and the body in space to think of your own home stories as the mythic canon of your life. How do you tell it?

"Le Taste os Jean-Pierre" combines farce, physical comedy, and the grotesque to deliver a hilarious and exhilarating experience. With members from Belgium and the USA, our ensemble of three tells the story of a restaurant's Grand Opening gone terribly wrong. When the Master Chef has a heart attack, the ill-witted staff must find a way to deal with the body, dodge the press, and deliver the chef's masterpiece for the evenings pivotal event. Using small costume changes, a handful of props, and lots of confetti, we invite the audience to enter our tilted world and explode with laughter.

About the artists

Farcicles & The West

Farcicles is a company composed of Jelle De Wit (Belgium), and Brittany Price Anderson and Richie Schiraldi (USA). The three met at Arthaus Berlin (formerly LISPA), a LeCoq-based program, while training for Masters degrees in physical devised performance. They specialize in revitalizing old forms of theater and merging them with contemporary styles, and approach themes of death and the grotesque through comedy and physical theatre.

The West is a multimedia collective creating narrative plays, films, and podcasts, working together in various constellations since 2009, when we met at the University of California, San Diego. Our members have worked all over California, and are now creating work together across Los Angeles, Chicago, and Berlin. Our theater attempts to capture the spirit of ancient campfire rituals, using ritual and festivity to build a sense of community.
