GRIPS Theatre

Altonaer Straße, Berlin (OSM)

The “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grips-Theater” target=”_blank”>GRIPS Theatre was the first emancipatory (in U.S. terms probably “communist”) children’s theatre in post-WWII Berlin. It certainly was a child of its time – Berlin still in its rebuilding stage, governed by Social Democratic Mayors, but still distressed by not only the ghosts of the Third Reich – and offered new perspectives to children, especially turning away of the traditional education principles of obedience and subordination.
