A co-production with the Theaterakademie Hamburg
Under the title of FAQ Room we pose the “frequently asked questions” that arise from current political, social and philosophical debates. In a specially created stage setting, we present productions of contemporary texts such as Michel Houellebecq’s new novel “Submission” and Ayad Akthar’s play “Disgraced”. Here we also present lecture performances, panel discussions (a. o. in cooperation with DIE ZEIT), readings and films which reflect on the conflicts, debates and uncomfortable questions of our times.

NEW HAMBURG continues!
Under the title NEW HAMBURG, the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus worked with a large variety of people and institutions in the island borough of Veddel. Between August 2013 and October 2014 they created twelve projects which formed the core of a three-week festival in October 2014. NEW HAMBURG is about finding ways of living together in a multicultural urban society, about the challenges and the opportunities this presents.
After the last festival the previous artistic directors Björn Bicker, Malte Jelden and Michael Graessner placed the responsibility for NEW HAMBURG in the hands of a committee uniting artists, inhabitants of Veddel, the Christian and Muslim congregations, as well as members of the Deutsches SchauSpielHaus. The committee develops the broad outlines, keeps existing projects on track and consults on new ideas, plans and events. Projects reach from initiatives that strengthen the links between refugees living in the hostel “An der Hafenbahn” and the community to theatre pedagogy in the local school, the establishment of a language café, as well as musical and dramatic performances in the Immanuel Church and other spaces.
