    Last Update:

    We are now looking for volunteers to be part of our international team for the summer festival of theatre and dance, that will happen in July and August 2022 in Frankfurt-am-Main (Germany). Volunteers idealistically come to live with us between the 16/07 and the 12/08.

    We are looking for motivated people, who can have fun while working seriously, with artistic and cultural interests, who like to live with a lot of other people together, sharing the life and the work.


    //This year, it is also possible to volunteer before the festival time, that is to say, in MAY and JUNE (only a few volunteers). In this case, please contact us to get more info, since it won't exactly be like in the festival times.

    //Small info for one person with BIKE skills :
    we have around 70 bicycles that volunteers, artists and workers use to travel to and from our living space to the festival and we need someone to manage while the festival is running. The bikes will (hopefully) all be serviced and ready to go before the volunteers arrive and the job is really to keep track of who is using which bike via our Excel spreadsheet and help people with small repairs. Some basic bike maintenance and organisational skills are required. Depending on your bicycle repair skills it may also be good to have you a week early to get the last few bikes ready.


    If you are interested in theatre, music, dance, performance and all that it takes to realise that, but ALSO in living a community lifestyle, then this is the place for you to be!

    We are a modern independent performance theatre, organising theatre festivals in Rhein/ Main region in Germany.
    We are an association: a cultural space organising many events and festivals in public spaces, aiming at spreading culture freely and for all
    We are also a theatre group of 15 people living in the same community and house, sharing their life, their work and their crazy dreams for many years. Here is the website of the theatre group

    This year for the 21st time festival will take place in the city, that vibrant yet chilled international theatre -festival on the riverside , with an elaborate and eclectic program of cultural and artistic events. Frankfurt will be magically transformed – the place in Frankfurt will be turned into a poetic parallel universe, a place for discovering, enjoying, exchange and inspiration.

    The program is already full and packed with wonderful stuff: national and international acts and performances of theatre in open spaces, live music, singer-/songwriter, Poetry Slam, Readers Corner, Open Air Cinema, Free-Cabaret-Space, Workshops, Trainings, the Market, tasty foods and delicious drinks.

    About our summer festival: From an almost empty space to a vibrant festival with art acts, theatre tent, beduine-tent, life music and various stages – someone`s got to do that…During the festival there is help appreciated in front of the stage as well as behind: taking care of the artists, catering, headset-disco, sound and light... and afterwards, everything should be built down again!

    This year we will offer more than 60 places for international volunteers. This is why we decided to give the chance to people who are interested not only in a cultural and social exchange, but also in theatre, in our projects, and last but not least, who are interested in community living!

    Furthermore, we are looking for competent and enthusiastic people could like to take over some duties, e.g you could get responsibility of a main area to lead groups of volunteers as well as you could share your ideas and enthusiasm!
    The people organising the festival are living in a community, living an alternative lifestyle. You will be living and working together with the performers/actors collective. During our festival we expect around 100 Volunteers, helpers and artists from around the world living in our house. At the festival place there will additionaly be 300 volunteers from Frankfurt helping us out.

  • Accommodation


    We are a community living together. It’s important to be considerate to each others, clean up after ourself and leave community areas nice and tidy. We ask for 5 to 6 hours of help per day, five days a week, two days off in exchange for food and board. For every following week count the same. Every day breakfast is taken in our house kitchen and for lunch and dinner we have a big VIP tent on our festival area or at our house.

    You will be living together with the ensemble at the collective space in Frankfurt, about 20 min from Frankfurt Main station by public transport. Living and working in community are essential components in this working camp and the festival is the main angle: You will be welcome to help, dance, cook, celebrate, wonder, grow and exchange.
    Also possible are excursions to the nearby cities of Mainz, Cologne or Heidelberg.

    What else ...

    The whole festival is held and organised by our independent theatre and performance group, living and working come along hand in hand. The ensemble consists of members from all over the world, who use methods of physical theatre, dance, acrobatics, stilts, improvisation, live music, fire performance... and make theatre happen in open spaces – worldwide. Theatre is brought back where it comes from and belongs to - into the heart of our society, into public spaces, for everyone to see and get involved.
