Open Call 2020


The Theatertreffen-Blog promotes emerging cultural critics, develops new journalistic formats for the internet, renders the festival’s day-to-day events transparent and accessible to all and documents the many facets of today’s theatre in word, image, text and sound as a multi-media archive.

Open Call 2020

Applications for 2020 are unfortunately no longer possible.

The 2020 Theatertreffen-Blog’s Open Call is aimed at young arts journalists and authors with a passion for the theatre, who would like to attend and reflect the 2020 Theatertreffen. Candidates from other fields of expertise, such as photography, video art and illustration, are also expressly invited to apply. We are looking for a critical view at the festival’s invited productions as well as its accompanying programme from a variety of perspectives – be they social, political or artistic.

We welcome a wide range of takes on the festival and the productions presented there; therefore, we expressly invite representatives of marginalised perspectives to apply. The 2020 Theatertreffen-Blog’s central concern is to strengthen individual capabilities, test innovative formats, develop journalistic writing and create access to the world of culture and the media for anti-racist, post-colonial or queer-feminist voices.

The 2020 Theatertreffen-Blog will take place from 1 to 17 May.

You can find detailed information on the open call and the application formalities of the 2020 Theatertreffen-Blog here:
