The Drachengasse Theater was founded in 1981 by Emmy Werner, has remained true to its founding claim in its eventful history – from “scope for cultural activities of women” to the professional stage with the closest connection to the independent scene: to promote theater makers without excluding theater makers.
With our own productions we have successfully occupied contemporary positions for years: new author theater, premieres and premieres, explosive in terms of content and formally demanding, but always “accessible” – theater for everyone.
Our concern is contemporary theater
Our theater offers intelligent entertainment and stimulating confrontation. That means: new pieces, controversial topics – exciting and often presented with wit and irony. We are particularly interested in women – whether in content, choice of piece or direction.
the combination of new, experimental and proven professionalism has ensured our continued success. The quality and content of the performances have made Drachengasse a safe tip in Vienna’s off-scene.
