+++ NEW SPRING-GANGS IN 2021 +++

You can register from now on. Let's get started!

Although we can only build gangs with a few participants are possible, everyone should feel included. Our rehearsal rooms are barrier-free accessible and so are our minds!

Costs per gang: 30 Euro, für the dance gang 60 Euro. We know that this is a lot of money for some families and individuals. Please get in touch with us, we will find a solution for everyone!

Registration exclusively via the form:



A gang for people from the age of 16

"It was totally original. And it was crazy sometimes. Almost everything in life was black and white. Glam rock made everything colourful."

(Dave Hill, singer of the band Slade)

Have you always wanted to make music, dance and let go of out all your feelings? Do you want to know more about more about Glam Rock and be a part of it yourself? If so, then our gang is the right place for you! During one week, we‘ll make music together  and come up with a little but flamboyant performance, which will bring our message to the world. Feel free to start thinking about what that message could be!

You don't have to know how to play an instrument to be in the gang, but of course, we would be very happy to welcome you if you do.

DIRECTION: Pauline Weeke, with musical/sound support from Dries Hoof

DATES: 31.05.–05.06.2021 (if the pandemic development allows it) 

TIME: approx. 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.PLACE: Zoom

LOCATION: Rehearsal room Junges Schauspielhaus, Humboldtstraße 40, 44787 Bochum, Germany

On the asphalt
Puppet Theatre Gang

Under the direction of Kama, you‘ll go out into the streets to act and dance. Our stages will be the hidden places in Bochum: underground garages, backyards, parks and much more. We‘ll develop choreographies from different dance styles that you‘ll dance and experienced in the natural decor of the city.

Besides a first block "INDOOR", where Kama will train and dance with you a lot, we will go "OUTDOOR" together and look for our stages in the city. Where exactly we will dance at the end, whether we will do it with an audience or shoot a dance film, that remains to be seen and we will decide together. In this project, you are the co-creators and we‘ll think creatively together!

We are looking for courageous participants (and participants, who want to learn to be courageous) who want to discover the city environment in a new way, who like to be outside a lot and above all: who want to dance!

DIRECTION: Kama Frankl-Groß

We cannot yet estimate when the gang will be able to start. We have to wait to know how the Corona situation will develop over the next few weeks. However, we are confident that the gang will perform before the end of this season! If you want to be part of this gang, just sign up. We will send you all the necessary information as soon as we know more.

COSTS: 60 Euro


Tell me how you play
Intergenerational Bochum Gang

Playgrounds in the past and today – a tour through times and places, a gang to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the city of Bochum. Playing and playgrounds are a strong connection between us humans – yesterday and today! Seven children and teenagers and seven adults tell us about their playgrounds: Where did you like to play the most, which games do you remember? What has become your favourite playground? Which games have made it into the present day?

On the occasion of the city's anniversary  we will create a fresh-air trail, which you can explore individually with an app or map.

We are also planning to set up a storytelling forum where stories from the past can be revived and stories from children and young people today can find their place.

DIRECTION: Susanne Scheffler

DATES: initially individual

TIME: by individual arrangement

PLACE: at the venue

COSTS: free of charge

This offer is sponsored by the Sparkasse Bochum Foundation for the Promotion of Culture and Science and is free of charge.
