The voyeurs Basel

The audience of the future

You prefer the role of the observer?

But you also wish to be involved in a critical exchange on what you see?

You would very much like to discuss cultural issues with people in your own age group and theatre makers?


Then you belong in the Club of Voyeurs! The Voyeurs meet up every Wednesday and take a closer look at the theatre landscape of Basel Stadt. Regardless of whether it is at Theater Basel, jungen theater basel, Kaserne Basel, Theaterfalle, Theater Roxy or Literaturhaus – you will see more this year than ever before! But it is not just about watching, it is also about discussing and criticising. We regularly invite theatre makers and experts to the Club who listen to your points and express their thoughts. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to take an exclusive look behind the scenes and check out the creative processes. Engage in possible discussion around the following questions: How is a play created? How does a play become part of the theatre programme? What is a critic? Maybe you have a real interest in theatre photography, music or video art – it is you, as a club member, who gives the Club of Voyeurs its spirit and soul! In addition to the meetings every Wednesday and three intensive days, the Voyeurs will also go on a weekend trip to a theatre festival in another city.
