From 2014 to 2016, “Be My Guest”, the exchange programme initiated by the Goethe-Institut, annually invited an international festival-curator to the Theatertreffen. Not only was the guest’s festival programme presented under the auspices of the exchange programme; his or her views of the German-language theatre scene were also presented and discussed. In exchange, the Theatertreffen was presented during the festival of the guest country in the following year. Finally, a production selected for the Theatertreffen was nominated to take part at the visiting festival.
