About the venue:

Ratibor Theater

For nearly 40 years, there is a small backyard theatre "Ratibor Theater" in Kreuzberg - one of the oldest still existing Off-theaters from the 70's in Berlin. After a time of street theatre, experimental and political theatre, various theatre initiatives, play developing, hosting guest-shows and much more the impro-group "Die Gorillas" started in 1997 to perform their weekly shows at the Ratibor. With their shows and the annual festival for improvisational theater -- IMPRO -- the theater became a well known meeting point for improv artists from around the world. From October 2014 the Ratibor invites on select Thursdays some of the most renowned and respected improv actors from all over the world to create stories spontaneously and in any artistic improvised way as a solo show or mixed with other improvisers.
