The Festival »Dramen der Gegenwart #2« takes a look at the diversity and qualities of contemporary theater texts. A total of around 20 theater texts will be presented in a broad spectrum of forms.
Three play commissions/own productions show performative collaborations between authors and artists from other disciplines. In four staged readings – presented by an ensemble of authors – a broad spectrum of contemporary theater texts is presented. A drama parcours offers insights into new scenic texts that are still in the making.
The kickoff is a poetics impulse with reflections on the present of dramatic art. The text presentations will be supplemented by workshop talks, discursive panels and discussions – for example on the age gap in contemporary drama or on paths to authorship. A total of around 45 authors and artists are participating in the festival.
