All Abled Arts

The Münchner Kammerspiele is embarking on a path to further develop the theatre artistically and structurally together with artists with so-called disabilities.

All Abled Arts

What does All Abled Arts mean for us?

We question the Münchner Kammerspiele as an institution: What conditions do artists with so-called disabilities need in order not to be hindered in their art? What rehearsal structure? How many breaks? What tempo of speaking? What spaces of understanding can we develop so that colleagues with different speaking, listening and working tempos can work well together?

What changes are necessary to make the Münchner Kammerspiele accessible in front of and behind the stage? What skills does a diverse ensemble and team need?

How can we ensure that staff members with so-called impairments do not adapt to existing structures, but that they can expand and change existing structures? How can they also be active at decision-making levels and leave a lasting mark on the work of the Münchner Kammerspiele?

Artists with so-called disabilities will actively shape artistic practice at the Münchner Kammerspiele as ensemble members, directors, writers and workshop leaders.

The ensemble includes two actors with so-called physical disabilities. And four actors with so-called cognitive disabilities, all graduates of the acting training at the Freie Bühne München. They are permanent members of the ensemble.

Since until now there have been no colleagues with so-called cognitive disabilities at German municipal theatres, we are carefully trying to find out together how we can work together.

Directors and writers with so-called disabilities will work with us in a variety of constellations, questioning aesthetic standards and expanding common ways of seeing and expressing with their work.

We connect with companies, artists, institutions and communities on different levels. We want to create common spaces of exchange and encounter, share knowledge and artistic practices.

MK: All Abled Arts – Festival of inclusive theater
