With »street, documentary and everyday horror«, describes Nikita Teryoshin what he photographes. For our magazine »WORK«, the Berlin photographer dived into every day work at Schauspiel Köln for several days in spring 2022. Equipped with camera and flash, he protrayed our performers during their work. And surely, we do not want to keep those pictures from you!
Nikita Teryoshin grew up in St. Petersburg and Dortmund and studied photography at the FH Dortmund. His pictures can be seen among others in »Die Zeit«, »SZ Magazin« or »Der Freitag«. In 2020, one of his images was awarded to be the World Press Photo.

ALL FOR ONE / METRIC DOZEN / MY GENERATION

by Richard Siegal / Ballet of Difference at Schauspiel Köln
Dance

With the three-part evening Treble, Richard Siegel draws a connection between his internationally successful ballets of recent years and his recently created work with the Ballet of Difference in his new artistic home, Cologne.

Concealed under the title All for one, the 20-minute opening sequence of Two for the Show danced on point was premiered by Richard Siegal in April 2021. On the opulently radiant stage set, which Siegal developed together with the lighting designer Matthias Singer, and in Flora Miranda’s futuristic costumes, the unbroken belief in the power of art is formulated.

Metric dozen, originally created for the Marseille National Ballet, is perhaps one of Siegal’s fastest ballets: breathlessly, with almost inhuman timing, the dancers whirl through the nightclub-esque darkness of the stage and offer an insight into “the future of dance”. (Suddeutsche Zeitung)

With My Generation, which the US choreographer staged for Cedar Lake in New York in 2015, the finale becomes a sprawling party in fashion designer Bernhard Wilhelm’s loud costumes. Musically formulated as a tongue in cheek critique of the pop industry, the choreography charges into a kind of “flashing electricity” (New York Times) “a monstrous high, that you hope will never end.” (Huffington Post).

enjoy theatre together

between the years
Between the years we welcome you to various productions at the Depot! Look forward to GRAPES OF WARTH, STEFKO HANUSHEVSKY TELLS: THE GREAT DICTATOR, KING LEAR, LOVE ME MORE and ONCE I LIVED WITH A STRANGER.

new year's eve
For the second last time, we are showing Jan Bosse's production FALSTAFF on New Year's Eve! Experience Shakespeare's invented character, the epitome of the bon vivant, who saves himself from delicate affairs between king and prince in the midst of a state crisis.
On New Year's Eve, the bon vivant gives a big party and invites the audience to his favourite pub »Zum Wilden Schweinskopf«. Outside it's a state crisis, inside they party as long as possible. A live band provides the music. Sparkling wine and Kölsch included. Folk theatre at its best!

Close up

In our interview series »Close Up«, we present our ensemble actors to you.
Perhaps nowhere else have these streaming efforts been so focused and abundant as at Schauspiel Köln.
