English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center is the German capital’s only producing and presenting organization in the Hauptstadt expressly dedicated to English, the 21st century lingua franca, as the working language.
Our year-round programming comprises the Producing Series – Made in Berlin (in-house productions), the Presenting Series (selected international productions and work from Berlin’s independent performing arts community), as well as our Performing Series (concerts, comedy and more from Berlin’s English performing arts community) and Pedagogy Series (cultural and drama education). We are a member of Berlin’s Freie Szene, the independent performing arts community, and are currently developing platforms to share our work within Germany and abroad.
We consciously use theater and performance as living, discursive forms to bring artists and audiences into conversation with each other about our shared city and the greater world we live in.
English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center receives funding from Regierender Bürgermeister von Berlin, Staatskanzlei für Kulturelle Angelegenheiten.
Our 2014 project 25 Jahre Mauerfall or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Ossis/Wessis is generously funded by the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin.
