Wallstories is an evening length Dance Theatre work which was conceived by German

choreographer Nejla Y. Yatkin and premiered to rave reviews in 2009 in Washington DC as part

of the 20th Anniversary celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Wallstories is part of Ms.

Yatkins Berlin Wall Project (www.berlinwallproject.com). The Berlin Wall Project is a triptych

movement project: manifesting on stage, on screen, and on the streets. Wallstories is the stage

manifestation and is based on stories and reflections of Germans including Ms. Yatkin who lived

with the Berlin Wall. While 2009 celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall,

2011 marks the 50th Anniversary of the year the Wall was built. Wallstories was named by

Pulitzer Prize winning critic Sarah Kaufmann of the Washington Post as on of Top 10 Dances of


Performances of Wallstories were made possible in part by donations by the Historical Dance

Foundation in honor of Ms. Elizabeth A.R. Brown, as well as donations by Elizabeth A.R. and

Ralph S. Brown, in part supported by the University of Notre Dame and the German Consulate
