HAU Friends

The Friends of HAU Hebbel am Ufer are united in their enthusiasm for theatre, performance and dance, as well as by the desire to share this enthusiasm with others and to actively support these art forms. Ever since the founding of the Hebbel Theatre in 1998 by Nele Hertling and Rolf Hoffmann, the Freundeskreis (Friends Circle) has contributed with moral and financial support to the long-term viability of the internationally outstanding theatre work at HAU.

HAU Hebbel am Ufer, with its three venues HAU1, HAU2 and HAU3 is a paragon of current artistic positions at the interface of theatre, dance and performance. In addition, music, visual art and theoretical debates are a constant component of the programme. Internationally, HAU is one of the most highly regarded and well-connected of all theatres. International co-productions and touring productions by renowned artists and groups from all over the world are produced and shown here, as well as projects coming from the German and Berlin theatre and dance scene. Yet another focus is on developing and realizing innovative formats that frequently attract attention far beyond Berlin, and provide impulse and inspiration for other art and culture producers.
