Opening Ceremony by Toshiki Okada and the Ensemble of the Münchner Kammerspiele

From 26 June we are going to use the city as our stage and show an open air-exhibition with different artists that have been important for our time in Munich.

Together with DAS WETTER we have published a book about the Lilienthal-era at the Münchner Kammerspiele. You can buy the book online or at these bookshops in Munich:

  • Buchhandlung Lehmkuhl
  • Buchhandlung Lentner
  • Literatur Moths
  • Buchhandlung Walther König im Haus der Kunst
  • Soda Books
  • Optimal Plattenladen

Unfortunately "Desireless" by Tania Bruguerain on 19 and 20 June has to be cancelled. Lola Arias is planning a new programme which will take place on the same dates. Already booked tickets will still be valid.

The team around Matthias Lilienthal is bidding farewell to Munich at the end of the five-year directorship.

The first two premieres, originally planned for April, will take place on 15 June under conditions adapted to the Corona pandemic: The immersive installation "Oracle" by Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg opens the doors in Kammer 2. In Kammer 3, the world premiere of "WUNDE R" by Enis Maci in a production by Felix Rothenhäusler will take place.

Since the stages of the Kammerspiele are only available to a limited extent, we are also using the city as a stage for another art project: we are using already booked poster spaces as a stage. Together with the agency Double Standards, which has shaped the appearance of the theatre over the past 5 years, the Kammerspiele have asked artists from its extended environment for motifs on the theme of "World without Art". The result will be on display throughout the city as a free open-air exhibition from 26 June. The poster motifs are designed by Amnesia Scanner, Cana Bilir-Meier, Double Standards, Gregor Hildebrandt, Anne Imhof, Elfriede Jelinek, Rabih Mroué, Henrike Naumann, Philippe Quesne, Milo Rau and Tobias Rehberger, among others.

Last but not least, a closing event with the entire ensemble and team is planned for July in the Olympic Stadium. Save the date!

In the third episode of the Drama Kammer Thomas Hauser, Samouil Stoyanov and Anna Maria Sturm will read "Fegefeuer in Ingolstadt" with you on


Tuesday, 26 May, 5 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Wednesday, 27 May, 5 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Thursday, 28 May, 5 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

We are looking forward to you!

“My Documents” is a program, created and curated by Lola Arias, in which artists from different backgrounds present lecture performances, based on personal research, a radical experience or a story that secretly obsesses them. In “Doing It”, the Portuguese actor and director Pedro Penim confesses a secret passion that takes him very far across the sea of the internet. An innocent and obscure addiction that he never revealed before. He brings the spectators into the mind of someone who is constantly seeking and makes us think about our own obsessions. What do we do in secret on our computers when no one sees us?

Participation in the event takes place via the software Zoom by which the audience can see the performance live, make comments and exchange visions and insights afterwards. At the same time, the show can also be followed in the livestream.


Please find all the Performances here.

Rehearsals at the Münchner Kammerspiele begin today, May 18, in strict compliance with a specially developed hygiene concept. The interrupted rehearsals for "WUNDE R" by Enis Maci (staged by Felix Rothenhäusler) and "Oracle" by Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg can thus start again. Originally, both plays were to have their premiere in April. They should now be streamed as soon as possible or, if performances can be possible this season, performed in front of an audience.

In the second Episode of our Drama Kammer Benjamin Radjaipour, Zeynep Bozbay and Julia Windischbauer will be reading "Kabale und Liebe" by Friedrich Schiller.

This time the three dates are:

Part 1 Wednesday, 13 May, 3 p.m. - 4.30 p.m.
Part 2 Thursday, 14 May, 3 p.m. - 4.30 p.m.
Part 3, Friday, 15 May, 3 p.m. - 4.30 p.m.

Dear audience,

due to the current situation, it is unfortunately not possible to start playing on our stages before the end of May. We will still remain active online in KAMMER 4 from Tuesday to Thursday and Saturday with a changing programme.

All best wishes

While the doors of theaters and schools must remain closed, our ensemble tries to make homeschooling a bit more exciting. Eva Löbau, Stefan Merki and Julia Windischbauer would like to read Bertolt Brecht's "Der gute Mensch von Sezuan" with you and tell you some stories about the real theater-life. On three days they will discuss Brecht's drama with you:


Part 1 Wednesday, 29 April, 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Part 2 Thursday, 30 April, 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Part 3 Wednesday, 6. May, 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

In 2018 Franz Wanner's Performance "Die Befragung" was part of "X Shared Spaces". In May 2020 he is publishing his book "Foes at the Edge of the Frame".

These days we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation that has driven us all – actually overnight – into existential uncertainty. We do not know what the future will bring, but it is already clear that changes can be expected that will last far beyond the end of this catastrophe.

It is therefore even more important, especially in such challenging times, to show solidarity and to make a greater commitment to ensuring that Munich, far from pedestrian zones and large companies, is a lovable, creative and exciting city.

To achieve this, the Munich designer Sebastian Kempff has designed a Corona Solidarity Shirt, on which the names and logos of all those who want to participate will be displayed. It will be printed by Soulgoods in Munich.

The Münchner Kammerspiele are showing solidarity with this project. All further information and the shop can be found here.

Dear audience,

we had to stop the advance booking for our performances after April 19th until further notice. Unfortunately, no final decision has yet been made on how to continue with our performances after April 20.

Please be assured that we miss you very much and will do everything to be able to play for you again as soon as possible. We will keep you informed about the further procedure here on our website.

Thank you for your understanding.

Münchner Kammerspiele
