Schauspielhaus Bochum

Opened in 1915, the Schauspielhaus Bochum is now one of Germany’s most renowned playhouses thanks to its legendary managers and actors. Since the beginning of the season 2010/2011, Anselm Weber is manager of the Schauspielhaus. The artists he invites to Bochum are not only from the Ruhr region and all over Germany, but also from European and non-European countries. They contribute their very own stories and their special perspectives: of the future, of Germany and of what they come across in the region. Together with the ensemble of the Schauspielhaus Bochum they tell of what is essential in co-existence. The affiliated Junges Schauspielhaus under the direction of Martina van Boxen is a meeting place, a place of communication and creativity – with workshops, youth clubs and stage-direction workshops in the fields of theatre, dance, music, media, and literature.
