werkgruppe2 is a collective team of theatre artists born in the late 1970s, based in Germany. For more than eight years werkgruppe2 has been working as an independent drama group. Werkgruppe2 is an independent interdisciplinary theatre collective based in Lower Saxony, Germany. Founded in 2006, the team consists of Julia Roesler (director), lnsa Rudolph (music) and Silke Merzhäuser (dramaturge). Their first theatre projects had a literary basis (Gaming Instinct, The Orange Girl, Borderliners). Werkgruppe2 has been developing evening length documentary theatre based on interviews since 2009. Once the interviews are compressed into a script or theatrical text it is staged with professional actors and music ensembles. Always edge cutting, they look for new forms of dialogue between the various art disciplines in each project.
Aside from its own productions, werkgruppe2 realized projects in cooperation with the Deutsches Theater in Göttingen, works together with the Staatstheater Oldenburg and is a partner of the Staatstheater Braunschweig from 2013 to 2015.
