Volksbühne Berlin

The Volksbühne Berlin in Linienstrasse, Berlin-Mitte, was built by the architect Oskar Kaufmann between 1913 and 1914 and seats over 800 people. The construction of the theatre was financed solely by donations from members of the Verein Freie Volksbühne (Association for a Free People’s Theatre), consisting of so-called “workers’ pennies”. The Volksbühne has always been defined by strong directors, playwrights and artistic personalities – Max Reinhardt, Erwin Piscator, Benno Besson, Heiner Müller, Frank Castorf, Christoph Schlingensief – constantly renegotiating the boundaries of the theatrical. Today we are witnessing an epochal shift, where the performing arts are faced with new global issues and expansion into digital media. The focus of the programme will be on our in-house theatre and dance productions, performed on the main stage at Rosa Luxemburg Platz.
