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.

  • Regular training

    Due to the current pandemic situation, we are conducting all our training courses digitally until further notice.

    Thu, 27.01.22 | 17:00 - 19:00 | GRIPS ONLINE
    Remembering together (GS)

    Remembering together involves both individual and communal understanding of why things are the way they are. In this way, remembering also creates a basis for future-oriented action and can be practised and ritualised at an early age. In this training we will breathe life into our memoirs and examine individual and social remembering for its democratic significance.

  • 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.

    Tickets for the PRAXISSCHOCK on 21 January 2022 are available here.


    In cooperation with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Friedrich Verlag.

  • Pit stop – Theatre Intensive Workshop

    In this compact format over several days, we invite various game enthusiasts to experience the process of developing a piece from the idea to the workshop performance. The PIT STOP is recognised as advanced training for teachers by the Senate Administration, but is aimed at all interested adults. Participation is free of charge.

    The next PIT STOP on the topic of "Climate Justice" is planned for the second half of the season (from February 2022). An exact date will be announced.

    Please register your interest under: fortbildung[at]

Conditions of Participation and Corona Rules

We have part of our large range of advanced training courses officially recognised by the Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family as advanced teacher training.

Our regular training courses currently only take place digitally on Zoom. All workshops and trainings, if they take place in presence, are adapted to the current hygiene and safety requirements of the Senate. Since 15 November 2021, our training courses have been subject to the 2G rule in accordance with the Berlin Senate's Corona Ordinance. This means that participation is only possible under the following conditions:

  • Full vaccination protection against COVID-19 or recovery (maximum 6 months ago). Proof of (digital) vaccination certificate or proof of recovery in comparison with photo ID.
  • All participants in the GRIPS training courses must wear an FFP2 mask.
  • We ask all participants to quickly test themselves on the day at their own responsibility – better safe than sorry.

The health of our audience is our top priority – this is the only way we can create the safest possible theatre experience for everyone. Thank you for your understanding!

We look forward to seeing you!
