DEMOCRACY IN CRAZY TIMES
As part of our TUSCH cooperation with the Lina Morgenstern School 2020, pupils of the bilingual elective course »Politics« in the 9th grade dealt with »Democracy«. Through creative writing, they thought about what democracy actually has to do with their lives. The changes in their lives due to the pandemic also played a major role. They presented selected texts from their work in a digital reading.

Thomas Mann Gymnasium
Since the theatre season 2011/12 we cooperate with the Thomas Mann Gymnasium in the Märkisches Viertel. This cooperation originated from the program »Kulturagenten für Kreative Schulen« and has now become independent. In each school year, all German courses of the 11th year come to workshops and performances, so that all students have seen at least one staging of our theater in the course of their schooling and have engaged with it practically as well as more intensively in advance.
If you would like to enter into a more intensive and lasting exchange with the Schaubühne with your school or institution, we will gladly develop formats of cooperation together with you.
TUSCH – Theater und Schule
The Schaubühne is a partner of TUSCH Berlin, a partnership project between Berlin's theaters and schools, initiated by JugendKulturService GmbH and the Berlin Senate Department of Education.
As part of TUSCH, the Schaubühne is in the second year of a close cooperation with the Lina Morgenstern School. This season new students of a seventh grade class will get to know each other through theatre educational methods in relation to social learning, and an eighth grade class will deal interdisciplinary and theatrical with the topic »Poverty and Wealth«. Furthermore teachers and students of the entire school will see performances, participate in workshops with us, take a look backstage and meet some of the Schaubühne staff in person.
