This year we celebrate the 6th International Street Theatre Festival Berlin lacht! On our main base Mariannenplatz from the 12th to the 14th of June 2009.
And again, as last year, we will continue! We will take on, through peaceful assault, the main places in Berlin.
We are enthusiastically looking ahead to be present for 2 weekends in a row starting on the 9th of July, 2009.

Festival Conditions
Low Budget - please don’t forget!
It is a Low budget Festival as long as we don’t have grants from the government, so please help to make it better with your appearance!

The very least we will supply you with is;

Accommodation: Room, dorm or private homes.
(Depending if we get sponsoring or not, but we will try our best to make you a pleasant stay in Berlin.
Please let us know in the application form how important it is for you and if you have friends to stay with in Berlin)

Food: one warm meal a day, we will provide more if we can.

Advertisement: We will promote your performance in the program and our website.

For more information concerning your stay, performances, and possible gage, please send
us an email.

This year would like to welcome any persons whom may be travelling through Berlin at the time
of the festival, to give us a helping hand. What we look for are people who preferably have already a bit of experience in theatre and/or festivals. Stage managing, stage tech. know-how and many other aspects having to do with festival preparation which are always of need in order to smooth out the ridged edges.
We have no gage for this, but it’s a great way to be in an internationally artistic environment, and contact making for other festivals and artists from all over the globe. Furthermore, to homer your skills in theatrics and festivals. The same basics can be provided as written above for the artists.
Please contact for more info!

Festival Dates
6th Anniversary in our home district, and our base where everything began. Lovely atmosphere and
great audience. It is almost a kind of “social work” to play there, but every artist loves to perform for the wild audience of Kreuzberg.

2nd time at Kürfürstendamm
At the famous Kaiser-Wilhelm-GedächtnisKirche, “Kaiser William Memorial Church is located in Berlin on the Kurfürstendamm in the centre of the Breitscheidplatz. The original church on the site was built in the 1890s. It was badly damaged in a bombing raid in 1943. The present building, which consists of a church with an attached foyer and a separate belfry with an attached chapel, was built between 1959 and 1963. The damaged spire of the old church has been retained and its ground floor has been made into a memorial hall.” This is one of Berlins Biggest Tourist attractions. More than 20000 People
pass by every day, and it was the centre of Berlin before the wall came down.
