24. - 26. Januar 19: Deep Dive Dramaturgy

Adaptations of novels, curating thematic weekends, inventing a performance together with an artistic teamthe job of the dramaturge has become more and more complex over the last decades. In today's theater, dramaturges are the center of communication between directors, ensemble, technicians, PR and the audience. What kind of trainings and studies are preparing for these varied tasks, what differences are there in the European context?

For a weekend teachers and students of several European programs will meet and dive deep into the mystery of dramaturgy. They will watch the following performances (all with English surtitles) and meet the dramaturges/team members for talks and workshops.

With Helena Eckert, Valerie Göhring, Tarun Kade, Martin Valdés-Stauber a.o.
