+++ INFOS ABOUT COVID-19 +++

From June, 5th 2021 we will play live in front of an audience again. Our digital programme BO-STREAM will continue to run at a reduced rate. A test centre has been set up in the foyer of the Schauspielhaus where citizens of Bochum can be tested for Corona.

Infos in times of Covid-19 (only in German)

to make an appointment at the Corona test centre

Are they sailing again? With Corona, the booming cruise ship industry also came to a temporary halt. Offshore hotels with seductive names like Coral Princess, Costa Diadema or MS Artania were suddenly potential viral hotspots, countries closed their ports and borders, and the liners cruised the seas homeless for weeks before being laid up to dry. But in the meantime, free Covid 19 tests are again being offered to unsettled customers: "Keep to yourself: All-round carefree - on board and ashore."

 

to play

In the bound Prometheus, the power of conviction, the freedom of the will and the necessity of fate come together. Without any doubt, Prometheus stands up for his love of mankind, is not swayed by any state authority, is not persuaded by opportunists, does not evade any Zeusian threat and endures his fate (almost) without complaint. What is it that drives Prometheus? Director Anna Stiepani explores this question in her production of this multi-layered, stirring and impressively beautiful text.

THEATRE ON DEMAND

     

In Foyer der Tiere, the WeltHütte and the Schauspielhaus have become a space of remembrance. Everyone has left this place, the theatre is empty. Only three people - are they still people? - are left. With them begins a fantastic, an absurd journey through the shadows, currents and echoes of the theatre interiors. A joint project by director Judith Skupien with actors William Cooper and Lukas von der Lühe, musician Christopher Bruckman, prompter Sybille Hadulla-Kleinschmidt and the electronic improvisation duo Shathp.

 

to play

After the cancelled tour in 2020 and after no gigs were possible for such a long time, the Tindersticks are finally coming to Bochum, but under slightly different circumstances: In 2022, the cult band around singer and mastermind Stuart Staples will celebrate their 30th anniversary!

to play

Director Jim Jarmusch and composer Carter Logan play live to four surreal and dreamlike silent films by artist Man Ray.

+++ AUDIO PLAY BY MOURAD BAAIZ +++

"Glow in the Dark" is an audio play created in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement. We follow Mourad who, due to his suboptimal love life and lack of representation in films, lets his imagination run wild in a cinema with an overactive air-conditioner. His thoughts lead him to conclusions, but are they the right ones?

+++ BO-CAST +++

Actor Mourad Baaiz meets his colleagues at the Schauspielhaus Bochum for a one-on-one conversation. Personal insights into what it means to be an actor and to live - now, here, at this theatre, in this world.

Award for Sandra Hüller
and Gina Haller

For their performance in Johan Simons' production of Hamlet, Sandra Hüller and Gina Haller have been awarded Actress and Young Actress of the Year respectively. Another pleasing result of the current critics' survey of the magazine "Theater heute": In the category "Overall Performance of a Theatre", the Schauspielhaus Bochum came in second behind the Münchner Kammerspiele.
