TOR 6 Theaterhaus

001 klein

In 2000 the Team of Theaterlabor moved to the former factory in the production area of the sewing machine producer Dürkopp, which had been reconstructed as a theatre venue.

TOR 6 Theaterhaus is the home of the independent theatre group Theaterlabor Bielefeld. International festivals, theatre productions, cooperations with other thetares as well as smaller events define the programme. On the other hand, the venue is a cultural centre, where several local groups and organizations present part of their programme (Theater Bielefeld, Kulturamt Bielefeld, KULTurVEREIN Bielefeld, NewTone, Ratsgymnasium, to name just a few). Thus the programme offers a broad range, showing experimental theatre or contemporary dance as well as comedians or cabaret artists and concerts.

A venue for production and presentation


The venue offers a hall that allows up to 270 spectators as well as two studios (used as reherasal room und small stage); one may enjoy the entrance area (Foyer) where we offer drinks as well as small shows. The venue offers a basic set of technical equipment.

TOR 6 Theaterhaus is situated directly in the centre of Bielefeld with an ideal infrastructure (well connected to local public transport system, nearby the main station, diverse bars, coffes and restaurants as well as hotels and shopping centres can be found).  We share the area with a centre for professional education (BAJ) and a youth hostel. In front of the theatre there is a square and a park, that can be used for open air performances.
