You are reading the newplays blog, a new online platform of the festival NEW PLAYS FROM EUROPE. This biennial takes place every two years at the Federal Theatre of Hesse in Wiesbaden and at the Federal Theatre Mainz, the latest festival from 14 to 24 June 2012. Please find more information about this most important international festival for contemporary European drama on the official festival website.
The special feature of the biennial is the inclusion of the so-called patrons, playwrights from 41 European countries, which give professional advice about regional theatre developments to the artistic festival directors Tankred Dorst, Ursula Ehler, Manfred Beilharz and Maya Schöffel. Via the calendar on the right frame the patrons post interesting events around Europe related to their work.
Taking part in the discussions is quite simple. You only need to write your name and email address in the indicated fields above the comment box and write down your thoughts. Then send your comment. Don’t worry, your email address will not be published, it is only necessary in order to send you an email in case your comment has provoked responses. You can, of course, also contact us directly.
