The idea for the project “Dance and Theater in the Neighborhood” arose in the course of the long-standing cooperation between the LUNA Park initiative and the Gesundbrunnen Elementary School in Berlin-Wedding and other educational and cultural institutions in its catchment area. In the meantime, the Carl-Kraemer elementary school, the daycare centers “Kunterbunt”, “Der kleine Muck”, “Osloer Zwerge”, “Weltkinder” and “Die Bärenbande e.V.”, the theater group KALIBANI, the Interkulturell-Aktiv e.V., the Internationales Theaterzentrum Berlin e.V., and the MiK Jugendkunstschule Berlin-Mitte belong to this cooperation, and also the Centre Français de Berlin, the Wedding Uferstudios, the Kunstkiosk Tropez at Freibad Humboldthain, the Theater 28 and the Quartiersmanagement Badstraße. “Dance and Theater in the Neighborhood” brings together school and daycare children from Wedding – mostly with a migration background – their parents and families as well as the neighborhood of the district with dance artists and teachers and theater professionals.
