The theatre education team is involved in various cooperations throughout the city.
KulTür auf! – Open the Door to Culture!
The Schaubühne is a partner of the »Bündnis KulTür auf!« (»Open the Door to Culture!«) initiated by the Youth Theatre Office Berlin. This network of social work practitioners, theatres and institutes of education discusses with young people opportunities for them to become involved in cultural institutions. In addition, in autumn the Youth Theatre Office is once again organising the Festiwalla youth theatre festival at the HKW (House of World Cultures), in which the Schaubühne is also participating.
TUSCH – Theatre and School
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. This season, as part of TUSCH the Schaubühne starts in this season a new cooperation with the Georg-Herwegh-Gymnasium. In the first year of the partnership, we want to get to know each other. We will visit each other and meet in workshops and other formats. Teachers, students and employees of the Schaubühne will take their first joint creative steps.
Cooperation with the Thomas-Mann-Gymnasium
For three years, the Thomas-Mann-Gymnasium and the Schaubühne have been working together within the framework of the pilot project »Kulturagenten für kreative Schulen«. Our cooperation remains! Although »Kulturagenten für kreative Schulen« have thus completed their program for the time being, all German courses at the senior level will continue to visit the Schaubühne, participate in workshops and experience our shows in the evenings. In addition, the Schaubühne provides an exclusive insight into the theater for one of the Drama courses and gives the students the opportunity to deal with one of our productions more intensively.
For the first time, in March 2015, we hosted a large scale project day for new drama. 240 students came to spend the day at the Schaubühne and explored the new Production »A Piece of Plastic« by Marius von Mayenburg, which was just rehearsing at the time. In workshops teachers and students met professional theater makers and members of the production team to develop their own approach to the piece. The day was supplemented by encounters with playwrights, set and costume designers, musicians and actors of the ensemble. All this created a comprehensive engagement of a recent production of a new play.
