About Theatertreffen der Jugend

The Theatertreffen der Jugend sees itself as a platform and place of impulses and exchange, a place of learning where young theater makers can negotiate their working methods and their different themes and attitudes and are encouraged in their individual, artistic forms of expression. The focus is on the invited productions and the encounter and exchange between the young players and their directors in a wide variety of formats.

The Theatertreffen der Jugend is part of the Treffen junge Szene of the Berliner Festspiele and is funded as a national contest by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
