Mediation offers

Youth Introduction & Artist Talks

The youth introduction will give you an insight into the work and the production (duration: approx. 25 minutes).

Anyone who is stimulated, excited, perplexed or even horrified after the performance and wishes to talk about it, is cordially invited to the artist talk: Young audience members meet artists to discuss the production in a relaxed setting.

The mediation offers around the performance visit are free of charge in conjunction with a youth ticket. The youth introductions and artist talks are only available in German.
