"Our art is for those
who are wild, who have a dream, for the brave, for the poetry warriors among us, for those who dare to face their own vulnerability, for those who are homesick for a better world, for those who are out of control, for the untamed, for the others.

If you are one of those our art is for you."

bambule.babys is a 'Bavaria bred' performance group.
The name bambule.babys has its origin in the screenplay 'Bambule' of German RAF terrorist Ulrike Meinhof about a girls' riot in a community home. The 'babys' symbolize human's vulnerability.

Our theatrical performances, installations and films are intense, experimental and controversial in nature and dive deeply into the unseen, reflecting the unconscious of our society.
In immersive environments and through deconstructive narratives we address issues of identity, alienation, power, control, sexuality and freedom in our postmodern times and beyond.
