We need space to lead the most famous contemporary and political theatre for children and young people into the future. We would like to have a new extension of our own with several stages, with rooms for the variety of theatre-educational offers. With child-friendly lounge areas and barrier-free access throughout the building. With an inviting restaurant and adequate infrastructure for offices, technology and workshops. With guest apartments for artists, maybe also for tour groups and school trips. There should be plenty of GRIPS for everyone. For our audience, for our guests, for our actors, for our employees, for our art, in order to depict and negotiate the realities of life of children and young people on stage, for all of our formats in which people meet for socio-political dialogue.
We have ideas and you have ideas. We want to implement them. For some time now there have been talks with the urban development office of the district regarding the open space on Altonaer Strasse/Bachstrasse. This offers a good connection to the old GRIPS Theater and is our preferred location to further develop the area around Hansaplatz in a cultural and sustainable way.
