Audience Development

schau mer mal –
Audience development program for the independent performing arts in Munich

Away from the mainstream and dusty high culture, an extraordinary scene of theater and dance creators flourishes in Munich. In countless performances, these independent creatives explore unconventional formats, position themselves politically, and play with aesthetics and convention. The alternative venues where such performances are created additionally invite the audience to rediscover Munich’s subcultural potential. Sometimes quite direct and unpretentious, sometimes shrill and colorful, sometimes highly intellectual, the freelance artists are hard to fit under one hat.

The series schau mer mal provides a direct view of these artists outside the spotlight and the stage. In a relaxed atmosphere, the people behind the projects become close and talk about their work. The offers of schau mer mal are as diverse as the performances: there are walks together, exchanges of letters, conversations, planning games and introductions to movement. There is something for everyone to venture into contemporary dance, performances and transdisciplinary collectives.

schau mer mal is planned and led by Anna Donderer, Tabea Hopmans, Laura Martegani and Martina Missel. As a project of Theaterbüro München, the series is sponsored by the Cultural Department of the City of Munich.

All events are free of charge, registration is required though. Please send questions & registrations by mail to:

schau mer mal is an audience development program of Theaterbüro München. With the kind support of the Department for Culture and Arts of the City of Munich.

In cooperation with the Theatergemeinde München.
