The Republican Academic German Drama Theatre is a unique creative team with a 40-year history. The theatre relies on the cultural heritage and expressive means of European and world dramaturgy, combining academism and modern theatrical practices in its work, organically weaving into the fabric of its performances the cultural and spiritual heritage of the peoples living in Kazakhstan.
Today’s theatre was formed and developed already in independent Kazakhstan. It has a troupe of people of different nationalities.
This is an example of harmony, community and tolerance; it is the unification of people through art. There is a creative laboratory at the theatre, where young directors, together with various creative collectives of the city, realize themselves in creativity.
