Upon completion of the coop of the biggest coal-mine of the Ruhr area, the mining shaft or Schacht 1/2/8 becomes the centre and pivotal point of events for miners of the Coal Mine Industrial Complex or Zollverein. The coop is a dressing and washing room with a capacity of up to 3.000 miners. The so-called white coop is where the miners leave their street clothes and put them in baskets, whereas the black coop is used for work clothes, the baskets are subsequently pulled towards the ceiling. The coop was modernized in 1964 and remained in operation until coal-mining was altogether stopped in 1986.

* The decision whether and when tickets can be returned for sale is usually based on artistic reasons. Frequently it is only evident during the rehearsal process or the technical preparations whether technical barriers, for example, may be moved or removed. In such an event, seats and therefore also tickets will become available. Current information is available in our TicketServiceMail.
