The Maxim Gorki Theatre, located in the Choral Academy on the boulevard Unter den Linden, is the smallest and most beautiful of Berlin’s ensemble theaters and also a historically significant building. Founded in 1952 as a theatre for contemporary productions, it became a Stadttheater (municipal theatre) for the citizens of East Berlin in the very best sense – it was both critical and dissident.

Contemporary plays, new interpretations of classical pieces and an interdisciplinary approach define the program of the Gorki. The theater is opening itself up to the city: with a young ensemble, with the Exile Ensemble, with Studio Я who stages experimental productions and artist from all over the world and the theatre coaches of Gorki X, who all invite you to get involved. The Gorki is for the whole city, and that includes everyone who has arrived in the city in the last few decades, whether in search of asylum, whether in exile, whether they be immigrants or simply people who grew up in Berlin.
