You will find content notes on some of the announcement pages of the plays at the Sophiensaele. Content notes are indications of possibly incriminating content that can be potentially triggering. Communication about this allows potential visitors to decide for themselves whether a performance is accessible for them in terms of content or not.
The availability and scope of the content notes result from a joint process and in close consultation with the artists and groups responsible in each case. Therefore, there are not always content notes for all pieces in our programme.
We are aware that the content of some artistic works without content notes can be disturbing, stressful or even retraumatising for some visitors. As there is a wide range of different triggers and we are not always equally sensitive to all of them, we offer our audiences the opportunity to ask us about specific triggers in advance if they need to.
We encourage you to contact us and inquire if specific incriminating content will be addressed, shown or performed in one of our performances. All you need to do is send us a short email, for example, which does not require any special wording or explanation and can also consist of just a question. Please contact Hannah Aldinger by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 030 27 89 00 35.
Please understand that it will not always be possible to provide information on all pieces and performances, and that the scope of the content notes can vary greatly, as many of our pieces are still in the process of being created and we show a lot of premieres.
We will do our best to follow up on all your requests.
Thanks to the Festival Theaterformen for the impulse.
