Dear teachers,

The new show, SAFESTAY HOSTEL, is for senior student 16+. It’s a self-devised play based on autobiographic material of the actors, each of whom comes from a different country. It’s about the individual and his or her place in society. We are enjoying developing this piece, exploring our own origins, our political and idealogical positions and reflecting on what’s happening on the world stage now. The premiere is on October 24th in the ufaFabrik at 7 p.m.

We still have some seats left for the premiere in the ufaFabrik on 11.10.18 at 11 a.m. There is a special preview on Wednesday 10.10.18 at 5 p.m for those who can’t make the morning performance. We are all very excited about JUST THIRTEEEN. The rehearsal period has been very productive. The Team created great images and interesting Characters from Lindy Annis‘ play. JUST THIRTEEN takes a light hearted look at a very serious topic.
