For individuals

Seeing theatre, talking about it and, above all, acting yourself enables you to think for yourself in a space freed from the dual right-and-wrong thinking. Our extensive training program invites you to express creatively your own view of the issues of our world and to compare them with your own environment.

    Climate change is ubiquitous and the issue that is forcefully politicizing children and youth. The issues are often complex, as is the question: where can we begin to act? In this training we look for the beginning for more environmental protection and climate justice in the group – we root ourselves, strengthen our backs, create playfully common knowledge and explore scenically first options for action.

  • Right in the middle – Specialist day for educators

    "Mittendrin" - Specialist day for educators: The starting point of the free, open and practical training offer is always a visit to a new production at GRIPS Theater. In the training workshop there is a common exchange of information about the topics of the play and we impart theatre methods for working on the topics. The next "Mittendrin" specialist day will take place on the theme of "Immer auf Spannung" ("Always on Tension") at GRIPS Theatre for the public rehearsal of our new production "Stecker ziehen" ("Pulling the plug") at Hansaplatz.

    Next dates: End of October

  • PRAXISSCHOCK – The prospective teachers’ slam

    Some claim that the teacher training is not the most poetic time in life – we want to change that! In three workshops, trainee teachers are invited to deal with poetry slam as a teaching method and their own writing through their own actions. The workshop series is led by Kirsten Fuchs (author), Prof. Dr. Anders (HU Berlin) and Anna-Sophia Fritsche (GRIPS Theater). It culminates in a poetry slam designed by the trainee teachers.

    This year the PRAXISSCHOCK had to take place digitally for the first time - on 11.04.2021 the poetry clips celebrated their premiere and the winner was chosen. All clips, the entire stream and all information about the PRAXISSCHOCK 2021 on our GRIPS Blog.

    Currently in planning.

    Presented by GRIPS Theater and the Friedrich Verlag.
