Offene Bühne

Always on the second Saturday of the month

Would you like to stand on a stage? Would you like to experience a cosy evening of theatre and watch a variety of acts? Then the Offene Bühne [Open Stage] is the right place for you!

At the Open Stage you can spend time in a welcoming space and try yourself out. Anything is possible: read out your shopping list, tell a story, read a poem, dance, sing soul, present your newly learned handstand, or of course just watch. The only limitation: each contribution lasts a maximum of 10 minutes.

The Offene Bühne is a series of events organised and run by the Theaterjahr - five young people who gain practical experience in the theater over the course of a year. It always takes place on the second Saturday of the month from 9:30 pm in the Matchbox in the Schiffbau.

Come by and spend a surprising evening with us!

Wir sind das Theaterjahr. Eine Gruppe von fünf jungen Menschen, die an Theater interessiert sind und ein Jahr lang am Schauspielhaus Zürich hospitieren, mitarbeiten, offene Bühnen organisieren und die alten Strukturen auffrischen. Wir sind Rosa-Lin aus Basel, Enno und Anina aus Bern und Moubi und Pauline aus Zürich.
