A Corona project in 2021 – with the support of the Performing Arts Fund with funds from Neustart Kultur – was the construction of our “Virtual Total Theatre of Sounds”. It was opened on 3 October 2021 after six months of construction and has been open to the public ever since.
Until now, only the foyer, the theatre restoration on the first floor and our gallery could be visited free of charge. For a tour through all the rooms of the virtual theatre, a ticket had to be booked at the box office in the foyer, as well as for a visit to the archive library in the theatre, one of the workshops offered in the two rehearsal studios or the booking of one of our 29 performances (as a complete video) in the auditorium of the theatre. Currently, our last production “hoppla, wir spielen noch” from 2022 can also be booked in its entirety (as a 3-camera recording) in the auditorium. On the occasion of this 30th video, which is now bookable and thus viewable in the theatre, we are releasing the free viewing of all rooms. So at the box office in the virtual theatre, a complete tour can be booked for 0.- €, which takes you through all the rooms we converted (according to plans by Walter Gropius from 1927). In this way, you can walk through the Total Theatre for Erwin Piscator in our realisation, both architecturally and interior design, online.
We are of course all the more pleased if this framework is used to book and view one of our performances.
