The selection for the 2022 Theatertreffen shows that thematically theatres are operating absolutely at the level of the times. But what about the theatre as an institution? Will anyone go to the theatre in future who does not belong to the “cultural bubble”? Do state-funded theatres have to follow the example of the independent sector and discover working as a collective? Will it soon be a case of: sustainability versus artistic freedom? Are these even a legitimate pair of opposites?
