The third edition of “Practice What You Preach?!” takes stock in difficult times. Over the past year, not only Corona has been an indicator of how far German theatres are still removed from establishing gender equality. Once again, Theatertreffen will invite the artistic directors of the theatres that produced the selection of ten invited productions to resume a conversation about gender equality, to develop prospects for the future and to assume responsibility. What is the status quo at German-language theatres? What are the next steps? What kind of equal opportunity policies are needed in cultural institutions?
