Theater im Marienbad (Freiburg Kinder- und Jugendtheater e.V.)
- Children’s theatre
- Youth theatre
- Theatre education sessions for schools
The theatre employs a permanent ensemble of eight actors and actresses, who are joined by guest performers as required. The productions are targeted at children, young people and adults. Small, intimate narrative theatre productions alternate with major ensemble plays. The ensemble’s artistic work has gained an international reputation through guest performances in many countries in Europe and beyond. Since 2003, the focus of its guest performance activities has been on cultural exchange with Iran, but the theatre is also involved in intensive exchange with theatres in Russia.
Another aspect of the theatre’s work is in communicating through its cooperation with schools and institutions for children and young people. The theatre puts on three to four performances for schools each week, enabling classes of children to attend. This experience is prepared or followed up by drama teachers at the respective institutions. The theatre is also involved in theatre education projects in cooperation with Freiburg secondary schools.
