Puppet & Theatre shows

1 Comment

As the winter draws in we are always looking for indoor activities for the kids. One good option is a puppet show, Bielefeld has at least three companies to chose from. We hope to check them out over the next few months.

Niekamp Theater

Dagmar Selje Puppen Spiele

Kummer Puppen Spiele

Bielefeld also has good children’s theatre –

Theatre Bielefeld  has a monthly Sunday  classical music concert for babies (next one is Sunday October 19th  at 11:15). They also offer lots of  shows for older children, including a musical concert series.

For younger children Stadttheatre Herford also has good children’s performances.

Below are a few recommendations for upcoming events from our local Bielefelder PollyEster
Italian:The next Italian Stammtisch (organised by an Italian student group called ACID) will be on Thursday 28.02.13 at 8 p.m.  Where? New World – Ritterstraße 22 33602 Bielefeld (behind Thalia bookshop, near Cafe Kaffeeklatsch) For further information.
It has become quite a large group by now, most of the people there speak Italian and English, some Greek or Spanish, and they
meet every few weeks at different pubs around town (or organise visits to the opera or the christmas market).
Flohmarkt: You might think it is far too cold, but this one is indoors at the Forum Boge on March 8th. Last time, there were loads of people,
live music and a lot of weird objects. It starts at 8 p.m. – Another indoor flea market is at Kurz Um (near Siegfriedplatz) on Saturday March 2nd, this one starts at 10 a.m.
Cinema: “Django unchained” is down to two screenings a week at the Lichtwerk now, but the Kamera is showing “Lincoln” and The Master” in
English with German subtitles on Sundays and Tuesdays. The Offkino has a Japanese screening of “Afterlife” on March 15th, it starts at 8.30 p.m.
Theatre: On Wednesday, there will be two performances of “Much ado about nothing” at 3.30 and 7 p.m. by TNT theatre Britain (in English) at the “Theaterlabor im Tor 6”, one of the many free theatres in Bielefeld. Admission is 16 Euros or 10 Euros for concessionary tickets. To get there, take
tram 3 to stop “August-Schroeder-Strasse”, it is not far from the Youth hostel or Real supermarket. The programm offers dance performances
amongst other things, something you can enjoy without any language skills at all.

Niekamp Theater Kompany“, a lovely puppet theatre, has one bilingual play (in English and German): “Jack and the beanstalk/Cinderella”
on March 16th. I’ve been there a few times during the “Nachtreise freier Theater”, which is a very good way to see little bits of productions all over town. This one is an evening performance for adults, admission is 18, 22 or 24 Euros. To get there, take tram 4 until “Landgericht”.
