Theatre and Dance
The cultural medium of theatre is old and current at the same time. Acting out stories on the stage and experiencing dramatics up close has lost none of its fascination. In Aarau, different professional groups like the Marie and SZENART theatres, with the Tuchlaube Theatre and the Fabrikpalast as production and event locations, guarantee an exciting theatre season.
The unconventional and often interdisciplinary programmes are enriched by amateur theatres such as the GaukeLaien, the Aarau Open-Air Theatre and the Aarau Theatre Days Festival.
