Under the heading “Against Separation”, Stückemarkt is looking for works from all parts of the world that explore the concept of solidarity from a perspective of art and aesthetics. What could our drafts for an open, equitable coexistence look like? How could they be expanded into the future?

We are particularly interested in young authors and artists who explore new narrations and perspectives and develop innovative artistic languages.From among the submissions Stückemarkts jury of renowned international artists will select a total of five texts/performances to be presented as part of Theatertreffen 2020.

Every year in May Theatertreffen, the most important German theatre festival, convenes theatre makers, journalists and guests from around the globe in Berlin. Since 1978 the Theatertreffen’s Stückemarkt has been has been an integral part of Theatertreffen: a festival to discover unknown playwrights. As the oldest initiative for promoting contemporary playwriting in the German-speaking theatre, it has been successfully engaged in the long-term development of playwrights and is a forum for exchange between international playwrights, theatre-makers, festival curators, publishers and critics. In 2012, Stückemarkt began a process of opening itself to a contemporary concept of authorship and is looking for new forms of authorship and innovative theatre languages today.
