Socially Conscious Theater


Founded in 1999, the Jewish Theater of Austria is the first artistic company of its kind in Austria since 1938. Its independent creative work confronts prejudice, discrimination, and the importance of coming to terms with the past. It develops new works on themes of contemporary, intercultural experience, especially in a European context.

The Jewish Theater of Austria connects people of all backgrounds and supports free expression and community consciousness.

A broad-based audience includes regional and international visitors, artists, students, and diverse interest and age groups at home and abroad.


Welcome to The Window!


As we continue to develop an extraordinary new performance complex in the district of Vienna Neubau, our administrative office in Kandlgasse is still home to the simultaneously intimate, transparent, and interactive event space, called "The Window".

A Message from the Artistic Director


We are often asked, if the government doesn′t support our work, how is it possible that we continue to produce theater in Vienna, where the government controls the theater scene through its centralization of theater arts funding and "Kulturpolitik" (culture politics)?

Our groundbreaking work is made possible with the generous support of individuals, commercial enterprises, and cultural institutions.

Theater is a community experience and reflects the experience of community. We are proud to enjoy the support of distinguished sponsors, media partners, and friends in Austria and internationally.

Please visit our current commercial or institutional supporters whose logos appear below. If you would like to participate as a sponsor, please contact us, or use the direct payment option (right) available on this page.

Thank you,
Warren Rosenzweig
