Theater Triebwerk is an association of independent theater artists who come together to create specific theatre projects with productions aimed at children and young adults. The group as a whole is particularly interested in working with aspects such as the application of live music as a theatrical element in story telling, and the freedom to investigate through improvisation the linguistic, musical and choreographic elements.
The company was founded in 1995 as an independent theatre at Kampangel in Hamburg. To date, the company’s twelve productions have been performed at many major festivals in Germany and abroad, and were twice awarded the Traumspiele Prize by the Land of North Rhine Westphalia (each production was recorded by the ZDF television broadcaster).
The production of Moby Dick won the Bavarian Theatre Prize in 2000. Three tours of the South Asian sub-continent, two in North America, and a number of guest performances in London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Limerick were crowned by a run at the New Victory Theatre, New York in 2004. The company’s production of Apt Pupil in 2003 was the first German stage adaptation of a novella by Stephen King.
