Conference on Gender (In)Equality
Livestream of the event on 19 May from 17:00 to 19:30
The programme schedule of the 2019 Theatertreffen
The Theatertreffen runs until 20 May, bringing together extraordinary productions, outstanding artists, new theatre texts and stimulating discussions in Berlin. The most remarkable productions selected by an independent jury of critics provide an insight into the work of the German-speaking world, while the 2019 Stückemarkt offers a platform to new voices from all over the world for the first time. As part of TT Context, not only the future of (city) theatre will be debated; the structures of theatre itself are up for discussion too. The three-day conference „Burning Issues Meets Theatertreffen“ puts strong women at the centre of how the theatre of the future can be made more gender-equitable and diverse.
Every year in May, the most important German theatre festival convenes theatre makers, journalists and guests from around the globe in Berlin.
