Interkulturelle Theaterzentrum Itz e.V. (Berlin)
ItzBerlin e.V. is acting mainly with young people (10-16) with multicultural and migration background in collaboration with schools (Kepler Schule, Adolf Reichwein Schule, Albert Einstein Gymnasium, Herman Nohl Schule, Loewenzahn Schule), multicultural associations such as TDZ (tuerkisch deutsches Zentrum), RoMa-Trial e.V., Vincentino Foundation, etc. We are part of a local network for cultural activities called Kulturnetzwerk Neukoelln. Our main interest is to cross borders, generational borders, borders of language, discipline, genre, social borders. We are offering a wide range of activities: from theatre workshops, dance workshops, but also productions of contemporary playwrights, readings, up to concerts, open mike sessions, common meals with discussions or construction workshops, public gardening, cinema projections. Heart of the Itz activities is the “Jugendtheaterwerkstatt Neukoelln” financed by the Bundesamt for Migration and Refuges, BAMF, which is acting in the “Hauser”, our project room at the Esperantoplatz.
