A professional freelancing theatre in the countryside: about 25 km away from hannover, hildesheim and hameln we live and work in a former children's home near a village of about 3.000 inhabitants. we are a family of five: suse (*1966, actress and director), fabian (*1971, scenic designer and cabinetmaker/carpenter) and three children (*1998, *2000 and *2006). With us are our grandma (*1925) and our two dogs (pastore bergamasco, an old italian shepard dog breed). Besides our work at the theatre with changing fellow collegues, we try to take possession of our huge ground and the adjoining buildings.
We offer a cosy place in a wooden cabin in the garden (the bathroom is in the main house), vegetarian food and an open-hearted, uncommon family life.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
volunteer working with us means: see and understand, what we are doing, show us your skills and preferences and find your place. You should be quite flexible as in our life and work no day is completely like the other. This means: we meet in the morning, have a good cup of tea or coffee together and talk over what is to be done today. Everybody should be ready and willing to do any task that is needed for the day (if you can ;)) - if it is cooking, housekeeping, gardening, lending a hand at one of the various projects in the housebuilding or the theatre belongings.
