The Junges Theater Göttingen was originally founded as an alternative and opposition to the classical city and state theatre. The student lay ensemble developed into a professional acting collective by bringing young authors and their unusual views to the stage. The then still unknown authors were, among others, the later Nobel Prize winners Samuel Beckett and Günter Grass. Today the Junges Theater still considers itself as an ensemble and repertoire theatre, but also as a unique space in the centre of Germany. The theatre as a space for serious encounters, open to all, professionals and amateurs, to all established and experimental, regional and international theatre professionals. A place where we can learn from each other.
