Streitraum extra 2021/22

This season, Carolin Emcke explores the topic of »Pluralization of the Present - Pluralization of Memory?« in her monthly discussion format »Streitraum«.
On 12 June, Carolin Emcke will talk with Manuela Bojadžijev (Professor of Migration Studies at the HU Berlin)  about »Migration - The Denied Normality«
Refuge and migration have shaped the society of this country from the very beginning. The diversity of experiences, of knowledge, but also of traumatisation that went along with it is still marginalised. How can the diversity of the present and the diversity of memory be made visible and audible in public discourse? What forms of representation and participation are needed?
You can find past editions of »Streitraum« in our 

»Classroom – where are you really from?«

In the new monthly series of talks »Classroom - Where do you really come from?« journalist and author Vanessa Vu invites childhood companions and experts to the Schaubühne to reflect personally and subjectively on the impact of social origin.
In the upcoming edition on 25 June, Vanessa Vu talks to author Emilia Roig.
Emilia Zenzile Roig is a political scientist, activist and founder of the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ) in Berlin. In her work, she is committed to making oppression visible in all its complexity and contradictions. Vanessa Vu, a 39-year-old from Neukölln by choice, talks about her turbulent family history, why classism cannot be understood in isolation from other forms of discrimination and what she thinks is needed for a more equitable world.

Free Space!

Let our theater family grow!
Theater can provide important impulses and food for thought as well as open up other perspectives. Theater opens worlds. Often these worlds remain closed to those who have neither the financial means nor the social background to gain access to theater as a young person. That is why we brought the campaign »free space« to life. Guests of ours willing to donate have the opportunity to purchase an additional ticket for selected perfomances, which they do not use themselves but make available to a young person. For this campaign, we work closely with various associations, institutions and partner schools, such as Gangway e.V. or the Lina Morgenstern School in Berlin-Kreuzberg, who are in contact with interested parties. All ticket dispensers and users are offered a practical introduction to the play with the theater pedagogue on the evening of the perfomance.
