You like electronic music?
Actors wanted

You like electronic music? You feel comfortable at parties and have a basic interest in night culture? You can also imagine to try out the interaction of beats and stage, dancefloor and stage fright? Then get in touch!
For the theater and performance project STATE OF EUPHORIA by director Gordon Kämmerer, we are looking for people aged 18 and older who would like to become part of a clubby art world that will be created at THEATER AN DER RUHR over several weekends in November. Together with the ensemble of the theater and a DJ, you will animate danceable stage spaces in choreographic, possibly also choral moments, which in the course of the evening will fully transform into the scene of a big party.
To participate, you must be willing to rehearse one or two evenings a week starting September 18, and daily during the final rehearsal week starting around October 25. The performances will take place on weekends between November 2 and 18. 
There will be a small allowance for your participation. 
If you are interested and for more information, please contact us at:

Everything different
One season — three islands of theater

Theater an der Ruhr will be inviting audiences to three concentrated theatrical events under the heading of one theme.

In frenzy

The season 23/24 explores all mental states - from euphoric to destructive - in which the boundaries of the ego become blurred and one "forgets oneself".
