In the location's words:

The Podewil is home to the state-owned non-profit company Kulturprojekte Berlin. The stage of the building, which was completely renovated by 2009, has established itself as the second venue of the GRIPS Theater. The GRIPS theater educators also have their workrooms in the Podewil. In addition, the Barockpalais in Mitte is home to many cultural projects, including primarily cultural education initiatives. A mixture of Baroque palace on medieval vaulted cellars, new buildings and conversions from GDR times, and renovations after 1990, the building is located on Klosterstraße, one of the oldest in the city, not far from the Berlin city wall. Its namesake and first resident, Count Heinrich von Podewils (1695-1760), was Minister of War under Frederick II. In 1874, the palace came into the possession of the city and housed, among other things, the Märkische Provinzialmuseum. After a bomb hit during World War II, it was rebuilt in the 1950s as the "Central Clubhouse of Youth." After a fire, it opened in 1970 as the "House of Young Talents" and soon became one of East Berlin's most popular cultural addresses. After reunification, the renamed "Podewil - Center for Contemporary Arts" became an international production and performance venue for dance, theater, performance and new music (1992-2004). Subsequently, the association tesla berlin operated its eponymous laboratory for art and media here until 2007. The company Kulturprojekte Berlin, a merger of the Berliner Kulturveranstaltungs-GmbH and the Museum Educational Service, has been the main tenant since 2006. TanzZeit - Zeit für Tanz in Schulen (Time for Dance in Schools) is committed in many ways to teaching dance as an elementary form of learning and expression in schools.
