The Berliner Ringtheater is a production venue where sociocritical New Drama and performative forms of presentation are staged. Its self-acclaimed slogan is »Macht Kritisch(es) Theater« as its aim is to develop a theatre that critically interrogates power structures. Since 2017 we have been providing young theatre makers with space for their themes, formats and working methods and have been supporting them in their projects through a heterarchical infrastructure. The Ringtheater is run by a collective.
The Berliner Ringtheater’s programme consists of 4 to 6 in-house productions per season, framed by discursive panel series and national and international guest performances. An essential characteristic of the plays at the Ringtheater is that they interweave political ideas with stories and actions – thus allowing unusual perspectives on current issues. Queer feminist, capitalism-criticizing and anti-racist perspectives, experimental forms and self-critical working methods are intertwined on an equal footing.
Since 2019, the Berliner Ringtheater is being funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The realisation of the website of the Berliner Ringtheater was supported by the Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of NEUSTART KULTUR.
