When we chose this motto for 2021, we never imagined that we would hit the nerve of the times in such a way. Taking a certain attitude is the personal challenge of the present! The pandemic forced us to cancel the 36th Theatre Days at the Lake Constance:
For the first time in the more than 30 years history of the festival we had to pause for two years. And in order not to risk failure a third time, we are changing the place and time of the festival.
The 37th Theatertage am See will take place from June 20th – 26th at the Kulturhaus Caserne, Fallenbrunnen 17 in Friedrichshafen.
This is just 500m away from our usual location. In this venue there are at least 4 stages available for us, including an open air stage. Unfortunately there are no workshop rooms. We are looking forward to see many amazing theatre performances. The motto remains the same: We are challenged more than ever to show attitude.
Doubts, uncertainty, a threat to social cohesion are strongly felt – previously believed certainties and nowadays-certainties are shaken. „Where do I stand?“ „Where do you stand?“ „How do we position ourselves?“ „With or against each other?“
But we also experience that culture is alive, how it develops new approaches to play with, rehearsal work and presentation formats. It is impossible to imagine our existence without theatre! We are curious which aesthetic answers and artistic formats the amateur theatre will find in/through/because of/for and to this crisis.
Please apply with your theatrical approach to „Attitude”. We welcome all performing arts disciplines: intergenerational, transcultural, inclusive and international.
Application deadline is March, 15th, 2022
