Theatertreffen 2024 Programme Schedule

Every year the Theatertreffen award is given to the invited ensembles from the 10 selection.

The festival center is traditionally the Berlin Festival House. The event is an innovative meeting place for theater makers and interested parties from all over the world, a networking and discourse platform and an open space for the theater arts.

The Theatertreffen has brought remarkable productions from German-speaking countries as well as works by young artists from around the world to Berlin every May since 1964.

What themes, aesthetics and focal points characterize the theater? Together with artists, scientists, journalists and the audience, the festival takes a look at the status quo and the future.

At the International Forum, young international artists come together as part of the scholarship program to look at art together and work on the future of theater.
