School / University / Groups


The aim of Kaserne Basel’s educational programme is to give various audience groups a greater understanding of artistic offerings through varying means and formats. These include introductions, follow-up events, production accompanying lectures, workshops with the relevant artists and guided tours around our venue. Each year a number of educational projects in the field of dance and theatre give local school children the opportunity to perform on our stages. Moreover, Kaserne Basel regular organises workshops for <young professionals>, thus bringing together internationally renowned artists and young creative minds and students from the local region.

Project: Kaserne!

During the whole season school groups will have the opportunity to take a closer look behind the scenes at Kaserne Basel. Pupils will accompany theatre and/or dance productions. In addition to reflective engagement with the actual topics, the pupils will see first-hand how a theatre and/or dance production is created by watching rehearsals and meeting artists. A more intensive programme, including workshops or even a focus week, is conceivable.
Project: Kaserne! can be seen as interdisciplinary. It is also possible to attend concerts or workshops in the areas of music, dance or creative art, or take a guided tour around our fabulous facilities and meet people from various professional fields.
It is essential to plan the year with Kaserne Basel in advance to ensure that the school curriculum can be adjusted accordingly. You, as the teacher, decide how intensive the programme should be!

Tanzakademie Basel: Home

A dance education project by Tabea Martin & Kaserne Basel / Tanzfest

Over a period of six months, three Basel school groups of different ages look at the different perceptions of what is ‘home’. A part of the «Home» project, children and young people translate their stories into movement and use dance to explore what it means to search for a feeling of home in today’s world.
