Münchner Kammerspiele


The Munich Kammerspiele is one of the largest theatre companies in the German language area. Since its founding in 1912, it is known for its renowned ensemble of actors and directors that produce plays that do not shy from engaging and entering into a dialogue with current affairs. The Munich Kammerspiele is an innovative contemporary international city theatre with a socio-political focus. The Dutch Johan Simons was its house artistic director from 2010 to 2015. In 2013 and again in 2019, the magazine Theater heute honoured the Munich Kammerspiele as its ‘Theatre of the Year’. In 2015, Matthias Lilienthal started work as artistic director. He invited a diverse group of guest directors, such as Philippe Quesne, Rabih Mroué, Toshiki Okada, Christoph Marthaler, and Susanne Kennedy.
