Bremen Shakespeare Company
Shakespeare's dramas along with newly written plays: with the audience at close quarters and no shortage of surprises, the BSC breathes new life into the playwright's classics.
Bremen Shakespeare Company (BSC) was founded in 1983 by a handful of actors. It is still self-financing and there is no artistic director at its head.
BSC's productions invariably break new ground – with the full support of its loyal followers, who are often an integral part of its work. At the open rehearsals, audiences are given an unmediated insight into the work in progress.
In addition to BSC's many performances, touring productions and coproductions, for example with Bremen University of the Arts, one highpoint of every season is the Bremen Summer Theatre Festival, when BSC performs outdoors in the Bürgerpark. Tickets are always in high demand.
Owing to building work at the Theater am Leibnizplatz, in 2012 Bremen Shakespeare Company will be performing in various different Bremen venues.
Information and tickets are available on the internet, by telephone or from the ticket booth in the central library (Am Wall).
