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.

The Schaubühne Berlin is one of the founding theaters of the European theater network PROSPERO. The ten partners involved in the multi-annual project of cultural cooperation want to undertake an artistic and cultural act, and to promote an ambitious theatre project which is also a political gesture, thus contributing to the construction of an artistic and cultural Europe.
