Summary/Abstract: Theatre institutions rely not only on their public, but also on their significance as a cultural institution in an urban setting. Therefore, theatre historians should not only focus on the history of performances, but also on the extended cultural environment and its direct connections. Institutions like cultural centers, alternative performance spaces or educational contexts redefine the local value of the theatre. The paper focuses on the German theatre in Sibiu/Hermannstadt (Romania) from the point of view of three interactions with its environment in the years 1912-1921.
