PACT Café

movement workshop for children

In order to protect our audience and the people we directly work with, the PACT Café are temporarily suspending all public events. 

We are reading from our favorite books for you! Watch all the videos (in German) here:

Every Wednesday afternoon local families are invited to drop by the ›PACT Café‹, a friendly informal space for conversation and exchange run with the support of the team of the BLAUER ELEFANT Zollverein children's and family centre. There’s complementary tea and coffee for the grown-ups and a play corner generously equipped with wooden toys, books, board games and handicraft materials for children of all ages. Those between the ages of 4 and 6 also have the opportunity to join in playful movement activities under the guidance of a dance teacher. The movement group is free and open on a drop-in basis. No previous dance experience or knowledge of German is required.

In cooperation with Kinder- und Familienzentrum BLAUER ELEFANT Zollverein

Supported within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
