The Volksbühne's programme for November 2018

The Volksbühne’s programme for November, with information on all debuts and events, is available for download here. At the heart of the programme are two performances making their Berlin debuts: Das 1. Evangelium (directed by Kay Voges) and Volksverräter!! (directed by Hermann Schmidt-Rahmer).

Das 1. Evangelium (The First Gospel), a transfer from Schauspiel Stuttgart, can be seen at the Volksbühne beginning on 1 November: Following in the tracks of the Gospel of Matthew, Bach’s Passions and Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film, director Kay Voges tells the founding myth of the New Testament through spectacular images. Theater der Zeit: “grandiose Bible theatre-cinema that explodes all around you.”

Volksverräter!! (Traitor to the People!!), a transfer from the Schauspielhaus Bochum, can be seen at the Volksbühne from 17 November. Henrik Ibsen’s term ‘public enemy’ is replaced with the ‘non-word’ of the year for 2016 and we’re plunged into the midst of a heated rally of today’s ‘concerned citizens’. The identitarian-authoritarian-trump wave rolls over us as director Hermann Schmidt-Rahmer asks: Is rebellion today automatically right-wing?

The repertory piece Three Billion Sisters by Bonn Park and Ben Roessler in collaboration with P14 (27.11.) will be shown, and the following works will be shown in the Volksbühne repertory for the last time: The Suicide Sisters (6.+7.11.) and enfant (30.11.+1.12.), as well as Women in Trouble for the last time, for now (10.+11.11.). Other performances on the main stage: Brainstorms – The Science Slam about the brain (2.11.); Das Teemänchen, a reading by and with Heinz Strunk (16.11.); Des Menschen Unterhaltsprozess gegen Gott (The People’s Maintenance Suit Against God) - a radio oratorio by B.A. Zimmermann based on Calderón (25.+26.11.) as well as a concert by Malakoff Kowalski (2.12.). From 20-25 November, the Volksbühne is hosting the 34th International Short Film Festival Berlin, interfilm.

Tickets for all November events may be purchased beginning on 1 October online via, at the Volksbühne box office and by telephone on +49 (0) 30 2406 5777.
