Dear teachers, school social workers and interested parties,

We'd be delighted if you enable children and young people to visit the Ruhrtriennale.

Here you will find a compilation of the productions, films and installations including age recommendations and possible links to teaching topics.

For school classes, we perform the object theatre play Im Garten der Potiniers / Au jardin des Potiniers and the play La posibilidad de la ternura / Die Möglichkeit von Zärtlichkeit during the weekday mornings. There are no additional costs for the accompanying offers.

For primary school classes from year 2 onwards, we recommend a workshop following a performance of Au jardin des Potiniers / In the Garden of the Potiniers, where the engagement with nature continues outdoors after the visit to the theatre.

From grade 9 onwards, we offer an accompanying theatre workshop for classes to prepare for or follow up on a performance of La posibilidad de la ternura / Die Möglichkeit von Zärtlichkeit, in which we creatively explore gender-specific socialisation, role models and biographical forms of theatre. The workshop will be led by theater educator Shabana Saya.

We are happy to advise teachers on the entire programme of the Ruhrtriennale 2023 and organise workshops or talks with students or teachers to prepare for or follow up on their visit to the event.
