Stückemarkt Prize Winners 2011

The two Stückemarkt Prizes of the Berlin Theatertreffen were awarded to two young dramatists. The Stückemarkt New Playwriting Prize was awarded for the eighth time and the tt Stückemarkt commission for the fifth time. Both prizes were donated by the Federal Centre for Political Education.

The jury presented the New Playwriting Prize worth 5,000 Euro to the author Juri Sternburg for his play “now the jerk is somewhere else again”. Included in the prize is also the world premiere of “now the jerk is somewhere else again” in January 2012 at the Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin. The tt Stückemarkt Commission worth 7,000 Euro was awarded to Anne Lepper from Wuppertal (born 1978) whose “Where Are We Going Dog” was presented at the Stückemarkt. The new play will be given its world premiere on 8th January 2012 at Schauspiel Hannover directed by Claudia Bauer.

In collaboration with Deutschlandradio Kultur the prize Theatre Text as Radio Play was awarded for the fifth time. Head of Radio Drama Stefanie Hoster selected the play “All That Glitters” by Mario Salazar to be produced for radio and broadcast on Deutschlandradio Kultur next year.

The 2011 Prize Jury consisted of Jens Groß (Chief Dramaturg designate at the Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin), Milena Mushak (Director of the Federal Agency for Civic Education’s festival ‘Politics in Free Theatre’), Lars-Ole Walburg (Artistic Director, Schauspiel Hannover) and, in an advisory capacity, Iris Laufenberg (Director of the Theatertreffen).

The Stückemarkt is an important springboard for young playwrights. This is borne out not least by the immense success of recent Stückemarkt prizewinners such as Philipp Löhle, Anne Habermehl, Nis-Momme Stockmann, Oliver Kluck and Wolfram Lotz.

We wish the 2011 prizewinners and all the other Stueckemarkt playwrights premieres, further productions and a firm place in theatres’ repertoires!
