»General Assembly« in November

From 3 to 5 November, 60 representatives from all around the world will gather for the three-day World Parliament »General Assembly« and will debate on where we stand as a global community and what needs to be done – socially, ecologically, technologically, politically. The results of all seven plenary sessions, that are open to the audience and will be streamed online, will conclude with the passing of a »Charter for the 21st Century«.

»Storming of the Reichstag«

Precisely one hundred years after the legendary »Storming of the Winter Palace« in 1917, that signified the beginning of the greatest revolution of modernity, the newly elected German parliament will be confronted symbolically. On 7 November 2017, a reenactment of the historical »Storming of the Winter Palace« will take place and everyone is invited to participate. The Storming of the Reichstag will be the big closing event of the General Assembly that will take place at the Schaubühne from 3 to 5 November.

The 2017/18 season

The new programme with information on all the premieres until January 2018 as well as on our two political discussion series »Streitraum« and »Streit ums Politische« will be available on 28 June. The digital version is already available here.

The ensemble photographed by Paolo Pellegrin

The portraits for the 2017/18 campaign were shot by Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin. Pellegrin is the last in a series of renowned photographers who have portrayed the Schaubühne ensemble since 2013.
