About the Festival

Every May the most significant theatre professionals from Germany, journalists and international guests meet in Berlin. The centrepiece of the Theatertreffen are the ten “most remarkable productions” selected each year by an independent jury of critics from around 400 plays presented in one season. This presentation of the best in German-language theatre is accompanied by a varied programme of further events: public debate with renowned guests from culture, politics and business creates links between theatre and social and political issues. Theatre fans come to the Haus der Berliner Festspiele to attend prize ceremonies, discussions with the audience, première parties and concerts.

The “tt Talente” at the Theatertreffen provide a special platform for younger artists, while the Stückemarkt, as a “festival within the festival”, has been presenting new plays by undiscovered European authors since 1978. The International Forum and the Theatertreffen Blog offer young theatre professionals and critics an opportunity to further their careers. The fullday conference, the Talent Meeting, promotes exchange and networking for young theatre makers.

The Theatertreffen is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
