Fund for Cultures of the New Urban Society
In June 2019, Thalia joined the Federal Cultural Foundation’s subsidy programme ‘360° - Funds for Culture in a new Urban Society’, pledging to better represent Hamburg’s cultural diversity both on stage and behind the scenes.
In Autumn 2021, as part of the Neighbourhood Festival, we will create performances that help us listen more closely to the Altona district, taking a closer look and opening up conversations. Generation-spanning, multi-lingual theatre workshops and interactive storytelling projects will take place around Thalia Gaußstraße. Perspectives shared by Hamburg neighbourhoods are at the heart of this cultural exchange.
The Nachtasyl bar hosts a new evening of artistic discourse as part of the 360° programme. Now Salon Tülüfülükülümülü regularly creates art here based on important topics in our society.
Thalia intends to break down barriers and combat structural exclusion. So the following plays in the repertoire will now be shown with surtitles: The Miser, Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet (Turkish), Goat’s cheese in matchboxes (Turkish, Arabic, Ukrainian, Russian, English) and The Books of Jacob (Polish) will soon follow.
In targeted, internal workshops we are trying to spark conversation around themes of cultural diversity. We would like to work together to strengthen Thalia’s position as an open space for everybody.
If you’d like to take a closer look at the changes we’re making, and the work Thalia is doing to improve diversity, or if you have any suggestions or questions, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your diversity team,

Dear audience, all of you,
We need art
/ of / quite different varieties
Once a month, Nil Tülüfülükülümülü (Nail Doğan) invites two creative, musical, literary or political minds to Thalia. Under our roof, in the Nachtasyl bar, we create an evening where art is made, talked about, thought about, played, sung – and everything in between. In between discourse and cherry blossom. Between melodies and letters. Human thoughts are demonstrated, performed and discussed. Because people need to understand each other. And soon. Every last Thursday of the month since 25th March. From the Nachtasyl bar. Live streamed. Directly into your living room.
Welcome to the
