We had witnessed the “half life” play and was breathtaking. Never saw someone like this, the expressivity, the unity the music were all incredible. This dancers were truly magnificent and deserved the 10 min. standing applause that followed.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
