State of Emergency

During the Covid -19 pandemia we put our production centre from the analog into the virtual public space – like may others – and initiated together with our international partners and friends the European Creative Lab.


The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the EU Commission has selected our submitted project PEOPLE POWER PARTNERSHIP.  We are very pleased to be able to lead a large international cooperation project for the second time after Power of Diversity – The Crossing Lines.

Take part!

Freiburg 900+1:
We will stage the conclusion of the – corona-related – extended city anniversary in mid-July 2021 directly in front of the city theater.

The Sacre du Printemps Project

is an international cooperation project between young dancers from Freiburg and Murmansk, Russia.
The choreographies will base on urban dance style, because this is the contemporary kind of expression that will be understand by the young generation world wide.
The scenography will deal with the different facets of the expression sacrifice, (in German „Opfer“ which can be sacrifice and victim – it depends from the perspective). like to sacrifice our livelihood, our future, our commitments of our societies. But as well the current strategy of populists world wide to defame particular groups of our societies and on the other hand to stage themselves as victims.
The Berlin author Victoria Hohmann will write texts around this complex, wich will be presented byactors as an prolog and epilog and shall give some thought-provoking impulse. For the prolog and epilog our composer Tobias Schwab will be involved again. Because of the corona pandemia, the event is transferred indefinitely.

1% for Culture

We call on the European Commission and Parliament to recognise the EU added value of cultural investment, by:
Doubling the budget available for culture in absolute terms, given that the cultural sub-programme of Creative Europe is heavily over-subscribed and suffers from severe under-investment, despite proven efficacy and relevance.
Ensuring that 1% of the budget of each EU policy field is allocated to culture, given its positive impact on domains as varied as health and well-being, social cohesion and equality, education, promotion of democratic principles, external relations, growth and jobs, research and innovation.
