Geheimnisse. Was ich nicht weiß... (multicultural city)
For the first time, the theme of "Children of Inmates" will be discussed on the stage. The main aim of our project is to break taboos regarding „Children of Inmates“, to give voice to these children and to change perspectives and focus on the children. It is meant to serve as an awareness campaign that raises awareness of society about an invisible group, to give it a voice and to effect acknowledgement within the public and politics.

multicultural city is an international collective of artists, which was founded by Monika Dobrowlanska in September 2012. We are looking for an artistic involvement with the living situation of social marginal and minority groups. We are inspired by the location of Berlin as multicultural metropolis. We claim that different religions, skin colours and worldviews belong to Germany. We want to support mutual understanding, tolerance and respect through dealing with prejudices and stereotypes. We explore and develop experimental stage varieties which result from the encounter of different cultures and arts. The first premiere of multicultural city „Displaced Women“ took place on the 22th of Mai 2013 at the Maxim Gorki Theater.
As an interactive space, the TAK is open to new ideas, vibrant exchange and exciting controversies. Creative events, such as theatrical and literary performances, concerts, discussions and readings can take place indoors as well as in the adjacent outdoor court; supported by state-of-the-art technical equipment. In addition, the location offers a rehearsal stage of 100 square meters. The TAK Theater im Aufbau Haus shapes the nightlife of the Aufbau Haus as well as its neighbour the Prince Charles Club.
