The Jury for the 2024 Theatertreffen

The Theatertreffen-jury chooses the 10 remarkable productions invited to Theatertreffen and consists of seven theatre critics. These jurors are usually serving three years in succession. The jury is appointed jointly by the director of the Theatertreffen, the director of the Berliner Festspiele and the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

The Jury for the 2025 Theatertreffen

Theresa Luise Gindlstrasser has left the jury at her own request at the end of 2023. In her stead, Sabine Leucht rejoined the Theatertreffen-jury for one season after already having been a member from 2021 to 2023. Together with Eva Behrendt, Janis El-Bira, Valeria Heintges, Martin Thomas Pesl, Katrin Ullmann and Sascha Westphal, Sabine Leucht will begin her work for the 2025 Theatertreffen from now on.
