Artistic collaboration between actors with and without disabilities: since it was founded in 1991, the RambaZamba Theater has been a trailblazer when it comes to inclusive theatre work.
Inclusive theatre provokes change
How does the saying go? Quality gets around. The extraordinary imagination and expressive force of the actors are an essential element of inclusive theatre. New ideas, imagery and scenes are created that would not be possible if artists with and without disabilities could not work together. They encourage us to think about forms of narrative and character portrayal in a different way.
The founders, Gisela Höhne and Klaus Erforth, are themselves the parents of a child with Down’s syndrome. In 1990, they founded the Sonnenuhr (sundial) association for their son Moritz and other people with disabilities, of which RambaZamba Theater is also a member.
In focus: the ensemble
The ensemble at RambaZamba Theater stands in the spotlight: there are 30 resident actors who are regularly joined on stage by well-known artists such as Meret Becker, Antonia Bill, Claudia Burckhard, Eva Mattes, Siemen Rühaak, Angela Winkler and Almut Zilcher.
RambaZamba has an impressive repertoire.
Around 100 performances are staged at its theatre during the season, and the company also stages its shows at guest appearances held both in other German cities and in other countries.
The RambaZamba Theater has good wheelchair access: the rehearsal stage is located on the ground floor, and the large stage on the first floor can be accessed by lift.
The lift can be accessed from the café on the ground floor, opposite the box office (which opens an hour before the start of each performance).
The wheelchair-accessible toilet is also located on the first floor.
We kindly request prior reservation of wheelchair spaces in the theatre by phone. Please call: 030-440 490 44.
