This is the name of the outbuilding of the Deutsches Theater and houses the second theatre stage, which seats 230 persons. In the foyer of the Kammerspiele, you´ll find then the third stage. In the somewhat special and unconventional Black Box, contemporary productions are presented in a modern form of expression. 100 years after the opening of the Kammerspiele, the Box was built in 2006 and it offers 80 people a theatre experience of a different kind.
