What are we working for?


What are our contributions?

We are the foundation for that one moment. We set clear strategies, frameworks, and structures for the diversity of the Bühnen Graz to give creativity the space and long-term stability it needs. We connect our companies and strengthen internal synergies.
Together we create moving and resonant worlds and open our stage-curtains to enable touching, unique and memorable collective experiences in the here and now.
We stand for a variety of artistic styles and perspectives in theatre and focus on Austrian authors as well as the rediscovery of texts to expand the canon.
Our utopia: space for imagination.
That’s why we make professional and contemporary theatre for children, young adults, and families.
We support live experiences around the stage event. With our administrative and creative services, we aspire to make every stage shine and transform performances into unforgettable experiences.
In this way, we give art its space and space its form.
We create live experiences for people in front of, on and behind the stages. For that one moment.
