Trau Dich

Kompanie Kopfstand. On tour since 2013. Germany wide.

“Trau Dich” has been commissioned by the German ministry for family, health and social as part of a campaign to prevent sexual abuse on children. After a long research period that involved children as experts, the play premiered in March 2013 in the Renaissance Theatre Berlin. It has been on tour through theatres nation wide ever since, reaching more than 250.000 children. We have additionally given a lot of talks and presentations around applied theatre in general as well as art and child-protection specifically.
