Empty Nest at the DT’s Kinderzimmer

Empty Nest at the DT’s Kinderzimmer


June 07, 2012, 8–10 p.m.

Since last year, the Schering Stiftung has supported the Kinderzimmer or Children’s Room of the Deutsches Theater, a new and rather unconventional venue for children and teenagers. Now the green container in front of the theatre is open for the summer season, with its rear wall folded back in order to create an open-air stage. In “Empty Nest” (première June 7, 2012, 8 pm) actors of the youth club will present scenes evolving around endings and new beginnings as well as good and bad memories that took place in their childhood room.

The presented texts are a selection of winning texts from the Treffen Junger Autoren 2011 (Berliner Festspiele). During the course of the Autorentage Berlin, artists and adolescents will show short performances in daily changing combinations about moving in, out or through a childhood room.

The project is based on the idea that a theater has to engage with its audience – in this case its young audience – and to know, acknowledge, and take into account its desires and demands. The Children’s Room, as a play space of the Young DT, provides children and young people in Berlin with a space where they can express their ideas and satisfy their desire to be creative and artistic. By definition, the focus is on the relationship between the interior and exterior worlds. Since Berlin still lacks spaces that young people can use and create for themselves under the guidance of artists, the Schering Stiftung supports this project at the Deutsches Theater throughout the entire 2011/2012 season.
