Selection Period for Theatertreffen 2020
Productions that have their premiere between 21 January 2019 and 19 January 2020 may be considered by the jury for the 2020 Theatertreffen.
The 2020 Theatertreffen will take place from 1 to 17 May.
The Theatertreffen 2019
From 3 to 20 May the Theatertreffen brought together extraordinary productions, outstanding artists, new theatre texts and stimulating discussions in Berlin. The most remarkable productions selected by an independent jury of critics provided an insight into the work of the German-speaking world, while the 2019 Stückemarkt offered 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 was debated; the structures of theatre itself were up for discussion too. The three-day conference „Burning Issues Meets Theatertreffen“ put strong women at the centre of how the theatre of the future can be made more gender-equitable and diverse.
Impressions of the 2019 Theatertreffen 2019
Our recap-video gives an impression of the 2019 festival edition. There were performances and discussions, we hatched plans for the future of the theatre - and partied a little, too! We would like to thank all participating artists, technical and other staff, panel guests, visitors, colleagues and all enthusiasts for a great festival and we are already looking forward to the 2020 festival edition.
Every year, the festival Theatertreffen brings remarkable productions from the German-language region as well as works by emerging artists from across the world to Berlin. Which topics, aesthetics and urgent issues are shaping contemporary theatre?
