Theater is life! But that’s more than experiencing theater in performances. Theater is doing! In eight workshops, the theater makers give practical insights into their working methods. CAUTION! The workshops take place at the same time. Only one workshop can be chosen for the duration of the festival.
At the same time as the workshops, a hybrid symposium will take place on site in Rudolstadt and digitally. The ancient Greek term symposium (Greek συμπόσιον) stands for “drinking together, socializing”. At Theaterwelten, it stands for roundtables and open discussion formats on a specific topic of international theater.
According to the topics feedback, critical whiteness (2015), theater and transculturality (2017), theater and community (2019), images of masculinity in (amateur) theater (2021) we are currently working on the topic of 2022 as a team.
A festival is the work of many. Only in cooperation does the idea become a shared experience. Follow the people who are gradually making the Theaterwelten possible in 2022.
