Schauspielhaus Abroad

Beginning with the season 2019/2020 , eight in-house directors have been shaping the programme of the Schauspielhaus Zurich: Leonie Böhm, Alexander Giesche, Suna Gürler, Trajal Harrell, Yana Ross, Christopher Rüping, Nicolas Stemann and Wu Tsang. Their stage productions have travelled far and wide. And their international networks will continue to grow - starting in Zurich.

However, for theatres in Germany, Austria and Switzerland it is very difficult and expensive to accept international invitations. The reason for this is the municipal theatre system, which is based on a repertoire and an fix ensemble, which tends to base productions in one place or even just one venue.

We want to be one of the first Swiss theatres to take up this challenge and send our stage productions abroad. To this end all plays produced by the eight house directors in Zurich will be subtitled in English and are generally produced with the intention to go on tour.

Information for professionals:

The Schauspielhaus Touring Office is responsible for the diffusion of new productions and organises international guest performances in Switzerland and abroad.

Detailed information on the productions of the house directors can be found here.
