Actress Isabella Mamatis founded the organization Lange Tafel in her Berlin neighborhood of Kreuzberg, which brings people together in a public space for art and communication to exchange ideas. In 2006, the theater artist Isabella Mamatis developed this format, as an oral history theater, for a mutual sensitization for the integration of the generations, religions and cultures. After 10 years of running, Lange Tafel has become a well-established Berlin tradition that has been held all over the city in a wide range of neighborhoods, and other major cities such as Hamburg and Düsseldorf.  Mamatis’ vision is to build the Lange Tafel around the globe and bring people world-wide together across ethnicities, social backgrounds, and generations.On July 15th Mamatis and her team invites you to Bergmannstraße in Berlin for an event dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the sister city partnership: Young actors from Berlin exchanged for several weeks with students from the California State University of Fullerton and with contemporary witnesses who had fled to the United States after 1945 and returned to Berlin after the fall of the Wall. At the center of this exchange is the idea: "Freedom instead of walls".
