Friends of Schaubude Berlin

Puppetry and object theatre need friends!

With enthusiasm for contemporary puppet and object theatre, the Freundeskreis (Circle of Friends) provides financial support and solidarity for the work of Schaubude Berlin and its Friends' association. It enables cultural education activities for everyone, international guest performances and particularly promotes the Schaubude summer residency – a unique offer in Berlin for artists to explore new forms of expression in contemporary puppet theatre.
