The Berlin­er Ensem­ble is a renowned the­atre com­pa­ny asso­ci­at­ed with play­wright Bertolt Brecht. It was found­ed in East Berlin in 1949, and it con­tin­ues to be a sig­nif­i­cant cul­tur­al insti­tu­tion.

When Bowie lived in the city, he would reg­u­lar­ly cross over to East Berlin through Check­point Char­lie to attend per­for­mances, before enjoy­ing a meal at the Ganymed restau­rant just across the street.
