Collective | All Das | - a theatre troupe under the roof of the Thalia Theater, formed by people living in Hamburg - for a short, or a long time, always, or every now and again.



Our new themes: no exile, no domestic homeland, no philosophised heritage, no sentimental identity or any seriousness. "Goat Cheese in Matchboxes" is about the relationship between people and that exists far from frames of definition. Something outside the box. How does one open a box? How does one close it? Can people simply put watermelons in boxes? Can it all breathe?


''You could miraculously fly... and if you want, you could even land. Even arrive. Or remain. The opposite has gone...'' N. Doğan


A live concert by Rasha Nahas will follow the Theatre piece.

Duration 0:50h, without intermission


Premiere 18th October 2020, Thalia Gauss


Funded by

The Turkish surtitles for The Miser, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet , as well as the Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish, Arabic and English subtitles of Ziegenkäse in Streichholzschachteln, are financed by the program 360° - Fund for Cultures of the New Urban Society.
