RETROFUTURISTEN are an independent theatre and puppetry company founded and based in Berlin. We are specialized in modern puppet and object theatre with an interdisciplinary approach. Always in search of distinct topics and new forms we manage the balancing act between own productions and commissioned work. Our productions emerge in cooperation with germanophone theatre houses and independent venues as well as in coproduction with international partners.

The team consist of Roscha A. Säidow (script, stage direction), Magdalena Roth (performing, puppet design and production) and Franziska Dittrich (performing, managment). Guest artists and theorists add new perspectives and trains of thought to every production..
