The Berliner Ringtheater is a part of the culture centre Zukunft am Ostkreuz. It presents and produces plays of young theatre makers. The Ringtheater focusses on: New theatre topics, political discourse and questioning customary methods of productions. These things engage with each other in our productions and events. The Ringtheater is organized by a collective of 12 persons.
TATWERK | PERFORMATIVE FORSCHUNG
TATWERK is a point of contact for artists who have chosen to use the body as material and research as an instrument for their work. The focus is placed on interdisciplinary, political and poetic projects in the eld of the performing arts. The resulting schedule of programming of classes, workshops and performances is supplemented by evening festivals and festivals where selected artists present their work.
Theater im Delphi
The Delphi is a former silent movie theater from the year 1929 that has been reopened as an international center for art and culture. As a production and performance venue, the theater offers a unique place for performing arts productions of all kinds, with excellent acoustics and breathtaking aesthetics. The artistic leadership of Per Aspera focuses on music theater and site-speci c projects.
In 1996, Theater o.N. moved into its current premises at Kollwitzstraße 53. There, the group has been showing its own repertoire pieces for children and adults, opening their house for guest performances by colleagues and organising series in cooperation with long-standing partners. The "Berliner Zimmer" with its 50 seats is a permanent institution in Berlin's cultural life. Generations of children have had their first theatre experiences here. Again and again, spectators express their enthusiasm for the intimate and hospitable atmosphere of the house.
