The times when the model of the independent scene and the model of the ensemble theatre faced off seem to be over. Instead of rigid parallel systems, mixed models can be found up and down the country: development trends that are reflected in the selections of this year’s Theatertreffen and Impulse Theater Festival. While the independent production venue Kampnagel is the theatre with the most Theatertreffen-invitations in 2019, Münchner Kammerspiele – a German Stadttheater (municipal theatre) – is the frontrunner at the independent scene’s “best of”-showcase. Is it mere coincidence or already the anticipation of a future theatre?
