Theater Thikwa is one of the most outstanding integrative theaters in the German-speaking world. These pioneers of inclusion celebrated their 25-year anniversary in 2016. Artists with and without officially recognized disabilities create dance and spoken-word performances in which comedy meets the experimental. The foundation of this "miracle of stage" (as the company was called by the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel) is the first training center in Germany where the performing and visual arts can be chosen as a profession within a workshop for the differently-abled. Theater Thikwa engages to a very large extent with the particular personalities of its ensemble members. Adequate forms for artistic expression are sought and developed. Thikwa is in constant contact with all kinds of artists. Artistic exchange is being pursued continuously in Germany as well as internationally by collaboration, co-producing and intercultural projects. Thikwa is also regularly invited to festivals, one-off performances, workshops and conferences throughout the world. In 2018, Thikwa was awarded the prestigious Martin Linzer Theater Prize for "the outstanding artistic ensemble achievement of a theater in the German-speaking world".
