If you’ve been in Berlin longer than, oh, three days, the area between Alexanderplatz and the Reichstag probably isn’t a top destination. But a new project from performance company MS Schrittmacher aims to show Mitte in a different light: as a site of economic crisis.
Places & Traces is a rickshaw tour (available in English or German) to eight different spots in the Mitte district. At each stop, the guide – on our tour, choreographer and MS Schrittmacher founder Martin Stiefermann – hands over an iPad and switches on the speakers, tied to the bike frame by a piece of twine.
