It is not the possible that interests us. It is the search for the one unique staging idea,
that needs to be found and to which everyone says at the end, as a matter of course: that's exactly what it had to be.
How we work...
Developing a production on location and creating it specifically for a city or an event requires experienced and creative partners. Theater Anu has been working successfully in this field for years. The poetic signature of our company and our professional team have produced unique productions that many visitors will remember for a long time.
We offer you a closed concept development: Based on your idea or occasion, we develop a suitable story and spatial concept, and stage it in our poetic understanding of theatre. In doing so, we draw on a professional team of actors, dancers, set designers, technicians, draughtsmen, lyricists and musicians, depending on the requirements of the individual concept. The result is "tailor-made" theatre events that are experienced by a wide audience due to the poetic theatre approach.
Theater Anu realises commissioned productions on a wide variety of scales: from mobile one-person theatre to large-scale theatre installations or square productions. Whether a river of lights made of 40,000 candles or a flying angel in an overseas container; whether a theatrical city play or a dance exploration of architecture. In addition to the uniqueness of the individual theatrical experience that our Theatre of Encounter brings, the sustainability of cultural assets is a focus of interest for our company. Asking costs nothing and site-specific productions often cost less than you think.
A selection of our commissioned productions since 2009:
Night Sea Voyage (2014) - A dream play for the anniversary of "100 years Edersee".
In the unique atmosphere below the dam wall, a walk-in poetic world has been created that deals with the history of the Eder valley on the level of the dream.
Expedition Thälmannpark: The Garden Analogia (2014) - A special project for theatre in public space by the Fonds Darstellender Künste. Together with residents of Thälmannpark, a residential area in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg district, unusual solutions for the residential area were researched using the PAN process (Poetic Analogy Process), a special creativity technique.
Kesselbrink. In the maze of stories (2013) - Square production for the opening of the Kesselbrink. In a labyrinth of 800 canopies, the eventful history of the city square was retold. Commissioned by Bielefeld Marketing.
