With the contact to other countries, HELIOS Theater has built up friendships with other theatres which lead to several international cooperations.
In their collaboration 2014, HELIOS Theater and Teatr Atofri from Poland created two different and yet related productions: SPUREN/Slady (both titles are translated into English as “Traces”) for audiences aged 2 years and up.
In 2016, Our House was created, a co-production with Ishyo Arts Centre from Kigali/Rwanda, . The ensemble of 3 German and 3 Rwandese performers created a play about memory, working along the motive of the house. “Our House”, a play for everybody 12+, was perfomed in Germany, Ruanda, France and was invited to the ASSITEJ World Congress in Cape Town/South Africa in 2017. In the same year, It was honoured with the award at “WESTWIND”, the annual gathering of Theatres for Young Audiences in NRW.
There is also longterm cooperation with the Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust from Delhi/India. The co-production planned for spring of 2020 sadly had to take place digitally due to Covid. However two plays for Kids were created in the Process: Curtain Up! in Germany and The Monster of Tilapur in India.
