The Russian stage (Russkaja Szena) is located at Kurfürstenstraße in Berlin-Schöneberg since 2008. The repertoire theatre was founded in 2007 with he support of the association Deutsch-Russischer Austausch, which means German-Russian exchange, and since then offers children as well as adults a wide program variety with ca. 20 plays in own production, and also workshops and acting courses.
The plays are mostly performed in Russian language, but there are also bilingual or German performances. Therefore, Russkaja Szene is the only professional theater in Russian language outside of Russia.
The theater has a permanent ensemble of ca. 20 actors that play modern productions of Russian and German authors once per week.
